  1. So from what Im seeing there seems to be a lot of improvement! Im seeing a derm in a couple days so I think I'll mention this to him for my own white marks. How do you feel about the results?
  2. Wow! Its caused by dry skin? Then that means that its completely reversible? Im really excited for you (honestly). I was thinking about it last night in the shower and worrying that there wasnt anything that could be done but it sounds like things could look up. Keep us posted on your results.
  3. I have the exact same thing too. I posted about this a LONG time ago and not many people could identify what it is (partially because I didnt have a picture to post). Thanks to answerme and her picture post, I dont have to describe what it looks like as her picture is identical to what my back looks like. I CAN tell you guys that for me, it has gotten a lot worse. It has progressed down my arms in places I havent recently broken out too which is weird. Do any of you have several tiny raised bump
  4. I really do hear ya. Im a horrible mess in all kinds of ways. horrible scars all over my back and my shoulders. I look like i was attacked by a wild beast with all of these long indented streak like marks and then i have pock marks. as if that wasnt enough i also have tiny white bumps on my shoulders, shoulderblades, and upper arms as well. I remember a time that i was uncomfortable about my looks when i was in public but could put it out of my mind when i was in the security of my own home. No
  5. I have seen numerous posts here about how depressed and hopeless some of you guys are because you have a couple ice pick scars or a few indented scars. Ive seen pictures posted of what is supposed to be extensive scarring when its really just minor imperfections. What about the people out there that really DO have bad scarring? I have probably got the worst scarring of everyone on this entire board and im not just saying that. I have so many scars all over my back that I literally look like a mo
  6. I seriously wish there was more options for body scarring. when you desribe it further it really does sound a lot like mine. i can tell you though that mine is more than likely worse than yours as i seem to have been predisposed to getting some slash like scarring (looks like ive been attacked by a bear). These marks are large and intented and pink in color. Ill be honest with you, all these scars all over my back has pushed me to attempting suicide a few times and I know ill make the attempt ag

  8. Good idea. I think I will do that. Also, is it true that the bleaching effect would help fade my red marks left over from old acne?
  9. derma anti bacterial cleanser? where can i get that? I cant use BP unfortunately as i work in the medical field and it would be pretty unprofessional to have white spots from the bleaching effect BP has on clothing all over my uniform. I seem to scar easily on my back so i want to tackle the acne i have now so i dont scar anymore than i already have. Thanks, Will
  10. mannnn, i know how you feel. Im not sure if your scars are REAL scars (indented scars/aka pock marks) or if its just red marks left over from acne (hyperpigmentation). I have very extreme scarring all over my back. I have pock marks, tiny white bumps, hyperpigmentation, long ditch like scars (looks like i got attacked by a bear). The long scars are really nasty ones and a more domesticated version of what they look like is like how your back looks after sleeping on a wrinkly surface (like how fa
  11. I have those scars ALL OVER my shoulders and shoulder blades. For some reason though, they seem to be trailing down my arms a little and i havent had acne on my arms that could cause these so im very confused. At any rate, i heard from a plastic surgen that there IS something that can be done about it. He says that dermabrasion can help as these scars are RAISED. people dont suggest dermabrasion for the back because the scars are usually indented and dermabrasion can do much for indented scars o
  12. Someone help me out here. I have looked everywhere for a back acne cleanser or at least a cleanser that wouldnt make em break out but its impossible. I have tried the cetaphil cleansing bar (supposed to be as gentle as they come) but it leaves my body feelings really tight and sometimes even itchy. I suspect its all the sodium derived ingredients. are there any less chemical cleansers out there (i prefer gel rather than bars cause they make me itch)? what do you guys use and how effective do you
  13. I was searching through plastic surgens and came across a surgen that says you CAN perform dermabrasion on the back for acne scars. What is your feelings on this? I have tiny slightly raised white bumps ALL over my shoulders and shoulderblades. Its so bad that my back could pass for the bible in braille and being that these scars are RAISED ones i would assume that it WOULD be possible to remove them even if they are on the shoulders or back. I also have indented scarring in this area as well an
  14. A tattoo to cover up scars. Well....I would have to get a pretty big tattoo but ill say the thought has definetely crossed my mind. Im an artist and have had lots of experience with making designs for tattoo work so i might make get somethin with one of my designs but it sounds pretty painful. Also, im pretty underweight at the moment so i think ill wait for a tattoo until i fill out a bit. Let us know if you decide to get something done so we can know how it worked for you. Its a good idea and
  15. Tiny white bumps resembling whiteheads that enver fully developed. This sound familiar to anyone? I have a bunch on my shoulders and shoulderblades, and lately it seems to be trailing down my upper arms. I sometimes have a hard time believing that its totally due to scarring because some of the places (such as down my arms) were not really THAT bad of acne to cause such scarring. PLUS, my scarring seems to have worsened and i havent had acne like i used to nearly as bad. Im a bit curious, is it
