Could this be permanent??

Hi Guys,

Long term reader but new poster!!

I had a large pimple following some surfing in dirty water and thought I would attempt to dry it with some nasty over the counter stuff called 'Freederm' - in the UK, not sure if you guys have it in the US!! Anyway, I well overdid it and eventually it completely dried and ripped off a large layer of skin, almost like a burn. Anyway it then turned really red and 6 months on has hardly reduced at all, took photo of it with camera phone and it showed a large red mark :cry:

Anyway, is there any chance this could be in the dermis as opposed to the epidermis as I believe that if so this is permanent :-( ,as usually all my red marks go within 2 or 3 and this one shows no sign of shifting!

Cheers for any help! :)
