pitted scars suddenly appearing-not acne

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if anybody else has noticed pitted scars just suddenly appearing, especially on the cheeks, with no apparent cause (no inflammation or anything from a pimple). A google search on "spontaneous scarring" brings up Atrophia Maculosa Varioliformis Cutis (AMVC), supposedly a very rare condition in which this happens. I've noticed in my case, as well as others in medical case reports, that noninflammatory comedones seem to be associated with AMVC, but do NOT directly cause the scarring. I've had a hunch both might actually be sometimes caused by a "stealth virus," and I am trying Aldara cream on my face, wich is used to treat various skin viruses.

Just curious if anyone else has been dumbfounded by spontaneous scarring, or if I really am extremely unlucky.
