i have had clear skin all my life up until i started squeezing blackheads. i squeezed them with dirty fingers and when they didnt come out i squeezed really hard untill i got it out in the process majorly damaging my skin. for the next few days the cut was filled with a white puss [i gather because of my dirty hands] which i squeezed out each time untill the cut healed. i didnt scar because it was a cut but when it healed it was adifferent colour from my skin - now when im warm my skin goes all blotchy red patches and i hate it - how long do you think it will take to heal and how do you get rid of them - they are not acne related blotches - they are like i said from cuts? - HELP ME PLEASEEEEEEEE!! - much appreciated - W-A-R-P-E-D.

I'm guessing that you squeezed with your FINGERNAILS, not with the sides (pads) of your fingers, covered with Kleenex (or other bathroom tissues)..That's your first & BIGGEST problem, however, the scars WILL go away. You need a product withe several lightwniong agents, including azaelic acid, which inhibits further melanin production (no more spots. Your picking is a problem, but more importantly-WHAT are you using to cleanse & exfoliate your face? I hope you're using AHA's or BHA's in a gel for @ at least 2%. Forget about Benzoyl Peroxide- if you don't know what you're doing, ypu'll just dry up your skin, irritate ie it & STILL have blackheads. Hopefully you're NOT using soap- which is ALKALINE & presents a whole other group of problems. Good Luck!

I disagree. I think you should just exfoliate, to improve the turnover rate of your skin and just be patient. The marks will go, i assure you, unless you used a knife to pick them out of something.

The body is good at getting rid of exactly this sort of thing, just let it do its job.
