pimples are scarring me?


Recommended Posts

I made a post recently about my latest pimple breakout (in short - not suppose to get SO MANY pimples ALL OF A SUDDEN at this age).

 

I had them all on my cheeks. Now, the red bulgy pimples are gone and what I'm left with are skin-leveled, a tone darker than my skin "circles" (in positions replacing my pimples). I'm quite pale myself, so the dots are kinda obvious.

 

I had pimple breakouts when i was younger, and when the pimples went away, i wasn't left with any marks.

 

Has this happened to you before? Do you get marks after the pimples go away? I went to my doctor when i still had the bulgy pimples and he told me not to apply anything and not to worry because they should "absorb" themselves.

 

I scrapped myself on my arm a few months ago... and i realised that after my skin healed, i'm left with that piece of skin darker than my normal skin colour. The colour isn't fading. I hope this isn't happening again with my pimples!!

 

please help!

It sounds like it could be post inflammatory hyper pigmentation..if that's the case it'll fade with time but it can take a long while sometimes..you can do things to speed up the process like glycolic peels, AHAs, IPL etc
