Hyperpigmentation or true scar

Recommended Posts

Hi 

I'm very concerned that I've caused a permanent scar from using tazaroc on a pimple that may have been open... It's been like 2 weeks and usually if it's just a burn red mark mine will completely dry up and peel away. Do you think these are red marks still healing or indented marks sometimes they look indented in certain lighting but feel smooth or dryish- burned but not uneven

I can't see if it's indented from this angle but to me it looks like nothing more than some discoloration. Does it whiten if you press it? If it does it's probably erythema, if it doesn't it's probably hyperpigmentation. I'm not an expert so take everything I say with a grain of salt. Either way, it doesn't look like something serious.

i don't know it looks indented in some lighting but I don't know if that's just the coloring lighting playing games with my eyes ....
