Acne scab pulled off, hyperpigmentation or formation of scar?

Recommended Posts

Today is Monday when I’m writing this. On Friday night, two scabs developed because I squeezed too hard at clogged pores, they were tempting to get out and I was impatient. So, with all of my scabs, they usually heal for a few days and come off easily, then the hyperpigmentation goes away and it’s fine. HOWEVER for this one, I pulled it off too early. Yesterday, Sunday night I came home and it was kinda cold, so the dry air dried up the area around my scab, and it looked like I can peel it off. I should not have done that, because i think there is raw skin exposed now, and I have no idea if it will even heal or not and if it can heal, idk how long it will take. I’m positive that one part of it is raw skin because when I took a shower it felt a bit sensetive to the water.

MY QUESTION: will my actions of taking the scab off early form another scab, will it form a little scar, or will it just heal by itself without the skin?

also, should I be applying aloe Vera gel over this every night to help heal it or let it be alone?
