is this a hypertrophic scar?

Recommended Posts

I had a pimple on my nose 2 months ago and i iced it. The pimple is still here 2 months later but it's like frozen or something, it doesn't hurt and is soft. I never poped it. could it turned itself into a hypertrophic scar? Hope not :(

Nah. I think you'll be fine. It will take awhile to go away but it will probably completely disappear in a few months. No worries. It might still be a little raised but the coloration will go away.

It really is difficult to tell at this stage, but it is most likely just a pimple that is taking a while to heal as it seems to be one of those stubborn underskin ones.

If it stays like that for a few more months then I would say it might be a scar. Maybe you should try a cortisone shot and see if it goes down? Either way a derm might be able to evaluate it.

Also, are prone to that type of scarring?
