About 3 weeks ago I had a cut on my stomach and i put a bandaid on it with neosporin. About 45 minutes later, i removed the band-aid and there was a brown outline of the band-aid on my skin. I am caramel complexion, and the outline was about 4 shades darker then my skin. It has gotten a little lighter, but not back to its original color. HOW DO I CLEAR IT UP AND GET BACK MY NORMAL SKIN COLOR???.
FYI - I've used cocoa butter, bio oil, ambi, aleo Vera, i dont have anything else in mind to do.
Without treatment, this usually takes about 6 months to resolve and for the skin color to go back to its normal color. However creams containing vitamin E can be tried. Topical treatments with acids and chemical peels can be effective but can take a while for the skin to totally revert to its normal color. Microdermabrasion can also be done, but this might require several sessions. Skin resurfacing using lasers is also an option.
It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
