I'm 37, female, with history of mayomas and hormonal imbalance. No pregnancies.
I keep a healthy lifestyle of regular physical activity and a balanced diet.
Apart from some rapidly growing facial hair around the chin and lower cheeks area, as well as very dry skin in the same areas, I also noticed that any skin irritation (ie if I plucked a hair) takes a very long time to heal and leaves a scar.
I use calendula cream every night, but it only helps partially.
The dry skin can be due to dryness or perioral dermatitis. Scarring can be due to post inflammatory hyperpigmentation. Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation is a condition where there is an excess amount of pigment following a disease process that affects the skin. Without treatment, this usually takes about 6 months to resolve and for the skin color to go back to its normal color. 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.
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.
