What is the right treatment for raised acne scar on nose?
A few years ago there was a period when I broke out a lot due to bad eating habits and I remember picking at the pimples on my face a lot. While my skin cleared, there was one huge pimple on my nose that never went away? It’s been two years and it doesn’t hurt anymore. It’s skin coloured but is sometimes inflamed and reddish. There’s no pus, and it just feels like hardened skin. I saw a doctor at my local polyclinic about it soon after it became obvious that it wasn’t just going to go away. The doctor said it was a keloid (although it doesn’t spread) and gave me scar gel treatment to apply everyday. It did not work at all. will I have to resort to laser treament to get rid of it? Will it come back even after laser treatment?
Hi M – it’s very difficult for any doctor to give you a helpful answer without a photo in your situation. Please try registering and creating a new question with a picture to get more useful responses 🙂
