  1. Ok thanks I just checked my local pharmacy they have dermatrix silicone gel rather than patches is this suitable?
  2. Ok I understand that but what I’m saying is the scar looked vastly improved in the second image after eating more vitamin c products and collagen supplements but after a week of applying BP it looks worse again.

  6. Ok thanks, with the second photo I can see few holes in the middle however what about the surrounding red skin will this also be part of a deep scar or is it just pigmentation? I don’t know anything about acne scarring I was planning on going to my GP for medication but with me fighting Candida taking antibiotics isn’t recommended for the gut. I do plan to see a dermatologist however I need my GP to refer me (I am from UK) and this process can take up to several months, I can afford
  7. Hi I’ve been clear of acne for the last 9/10 months diet and I think it was due to exposure to the sun, I also was eating better and working out regularly. I first started dealing with acne back in 2017 during winter at the time I was shocked as I never had it but until recently I’ve realised why. During my acne breakout I also have a flare up of seb derm around my nose. Ive started dealing with the same problems again, when i broke out Initually thought I should moisturize more which back
  8. I need advice regarding my scarring it’s really affecting me mentally I’ve dealt with cystic acne in the past with no significant scarring.

Ive been super depressed about the scar
