I developed skin infection on face and I am worried as the scars remain on my face. Please suggest how to make the scars go

Last Updated - Fri, Mar 16 2018

Detailed Question:

Dear doctor,

I developed a skin infection on my face at three places:

  1. One on the right corner of forehead
  2. One just below my right eye 
  3. Another just below my lip on the right side

Symptoms started with some itching and redness below my lip. Small blisters developed and as the symptoms progressed, more tingling, itching and burning sensation on skin were felt. I went to a dermatologist in my locality. In the first visit following medicines were prescribed for a week:

  • Prescribed Teczine tablet
  • Flucort cream  

In the second visit doctor prescribed:

  • Zanclav 
  • Cortimax

In the third visit, which was the latest, doctor prescribed the following for a month:

  • Alaspan
  • Grapox vitamin
  • Tendrone cream

I will be visiting after a month again. Now all the symptoms have gone, subsided with the help of the medication prescribed. But the thing is that big scars remain which is making me worried and uneasy.

The scars on the fore head and lower lip are like a kind of cut or incision made. Skin is separated and below the eye there is a red pinkish scar. I am worried if these scars will go away and will those cut type scars on the fore head and lower lip will return to normal skin as those skins are separated with each other deep inside. I will send the picture of my scar in an email for your reference. Kindly give a suitable advice and suggestion how to go about it.I want to get back my normal skin. Those cut like scars looks very scary and bad.Than you

The skin heals much slower than any other organ and takes its own time since a lot of finesse and perfection is required to get back to the original state. Most times the scars left by such infections heal. However, in some cases it may still stay and reduce in size but remain there. This comes at a much later stage than you seem to be in. 

So my advice is to wait for at least a month before treating the scars since the skin itself could be undergoing the healing process and messing with that can make things even worse right now. After a month or two, if you still see no improvement in the scars, you can seek a Dermatologist's opinion in a Skin clinic so that any required therapy can be started. Usually laser treatments help in scar removal very well and can be done easily with care of a Cosmetologist or a Dermatologist.
