Help!! I need to heal this scar its so embarrassing. Cant even go out

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone 

I have mild to moderate acne and recently I got a raised bump. I tried picking at it thinking it was acne but there was no puss and it just formed a dark skin after being inflamed. It was a bit raised and just like skin not hard scab so i peeled it off thinking it would be normal but I peeled the skin off there are no signs of healing so far. It didnt bleed or anythn as such like usually acne does n Its been 2 days now.. The dark skin around is what was peeled and theres no new skin forming.

how can i speed up the healing process or will it heal in 1 to 2 weeks or is it too severe ? Please help i attached a pic to be more clear

Keep it clean, apply aquaphor/vaseline until it heals, leave it alone, no picking or you will scar. Once healed apply retinoids (retin-a, tazorac).

I hoped it heal, i know how tough it is to have a pimple that won't heal and fear it will turn out into a scar later on.

Aww thankyou @AlexZero2014 yes it healed in 7 10 days. Theres a slightly brownish mark left as usual that will fade away within a month or so. Red marks take ages for me to heal and they have healed even the 2 year old ones. The brown ones fade away in a month or so with time n skin lighteners (not too harsh ones). Hope ur skin is doing well :)

@AquaPrincess9 I get one or two pimples if i don't take care of it, but nothing serious like before. I do have scars that I been trying to fade away and I'm trying to find any more good information on how to reduce the appearance. I heard green tea is good, but i don't know what brand and also I wonder if milk makes pimples come out?
