How do I treat my scar? It's purple

Recommended Posts

Hey so I squeezed an "underground" zit and now it's gone but where it used to be is purple. It's been like this for about 3 weeks and I've bee icing it multiple times almost every day. 
Will it go away? What should I do? 
Thank you

Ice will not change the color, this is PIE. Or post acne wounding. It can take months for many to heal. You can try the cures in the FAQ top of the hyperpigmentation sub under faq or the scar sub (first post) under skin - PIE. Aloe Vera and Honey are healing. Triple Antibiotic can help some. Viasine - anti red eye drops can even take away some of the red temporarily. You could put a tinted sunscreen while it heals, some poweder, or a concealer which guys wear too to cover discoloration. Vitamin C serum helps some.
