What counts as raised/hypertrophic scars?

Recommended Posts


I just wanted to know if I have scarring, specifically on my cheeks. If I do, what kind of scars steer they? What are methods of treatment? If I don't have scars, is it just regular acne? Also, I was looking up some stuff online, and im wondering, do I have hyperpigmentation?

Thank you so much for helping me sheet these questions y'all. It means a lot to me as I am really stressed out about my acne...

These could be cysts, go see a dermatologist for a evaluation. Infection can also create a bump or over production of sebum. They look red and inflamed to me like PIE or wounding post acne. 

Yes this is hyperpigmentation aka PIE, ... Goto the hyperpigmentation sub, ... the very first post is faq. See that.
