PIE vs PIH

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

I am trying to figure out if I should purchase hydroquinone for red marks. But, after reading the above stickie, I am unsure if I have PIE or PIH. I am trying to fade a mild redness located at the base my acne scars. These are old acne scars dating back to 6-7 years ago and because they are the base of pitted skin, it’s difficult to see if the redness goes away with pressure. 

Does the fact that this redness has persisted for so long suggest that it is PIH rather than PIE?

Thanks!
