need help on tca scab

Recommended Posts

Hi ppl, i need advice on what to do with a scab from tca cross

Around 2 months back, I did my first TCA Cross using 50% tca on 1 fairly large and deep boxcar scar, it scab up and fell off after 2 weeks. The scab fell off naturally as i did not wash the treated area or apply any thing on it during the whole 2 weeks. However, a few days later the treated scar rescab and now has been on my face for a month with no sign of coming off, the scab is a dark black colour and has a dry, crusted appearance. I was wondering what should i do at this point to make it heal properly, i know i shouldn't mess with it but it has been sticking on for a long time. Any advice is greatly appreciated.

Hmmm, i have never heard anything like this, can i just say, i suggest u get it checked out by a skin doctor, especially since u say the scab re-occured and is blackish in colour and is taking all this time to heal.

Hmm.. i have the same experience.

I have 2 black scars on my cheeks now that have been like this since March (it's august now)

It's going to take close to 2 years for it to fade (the deeper it is, the longer it takes)

Unfortunately mine are deep (they were from 2 large cysts i developed back in march....

i had similar scars before and they faded in a year or two. Now they're barely noticeable.

Thank goodness for makeup.
