Psychology efect of scars - looking for self-help books

Recommended Posts

Anyone knows any books which describes how to psychologically manage low self esteem caused by scars etc? Probably book relates to any skin condition, as acne, would be helpful since I guess mechanism is similar, however of course acne is little different than scars since there is more hope there that it stops eventually, but it is also more disgusting.
I hope I'll get rid of scars eventually but since life is passing I do not want to wait not know how long to reach this point.
Moreover, lets be honest, even if I would look like a top model now, after so many years of acne I would still feel like crap. Well, with normal people interactions I feel relatively ok now, since I know I do not need good look for this (however subconsiously probably it have some impact + a dozen of years of acne changed the psychic to more insecure one).
The worst problem is with man-woman interactions, since I had bad experiences with girls, mostly in acne times (which is most of my life, so...).

Thank you.

I don't think Dr. Feelgood has ever written a self-help book solely dedicated to facial scars. But who know? It could come any day now. But in the meantime, you might wanna check out these links:
