Slightly Indented scar on my nose tip
« on: May 18, 2012, 10:08:48 AM »

5 months ago I accidentally scratched my nose tip when I was removing blackhead from my nose. After that, the scab formed and fell off. Then I found that the area which is pink and is slightly pink. The area is about 0.5 cm x 0.3cm.

In addition, I noticed that the area becomes bloody red after taking shower or when I feel very hot. After 10 - 15 mins, the redness fade. The depth of the area is less than 0.05cm and the texture of the base is rough.

I went to find a dermatologist, he said it is risky to use dermabrasion on this area.

What is your suggestions? Dermastamp?

For blackheads, try this:
