Hi, I used to have very bad acne. I used apple cider vinegar for about a week, little did I know you could not leave It on and it is acidic. One day I woke up with a huge scab on bridge of my nose , about the size of a thumb nail. In frustration I picked it off and it scarred. The scar is hypertrophic raised and very lumpy and red. I have had vascular lasers, creams, silicone sheets,ect. Nothing seems to be working and it has been a year with no change. My cosmetic surgeon told me he wouldn't perfer to perform scar revision because of it being on the bridge of my nose and covering a good bit of it being hard to keep stitched and Would possibly end up larger or indented. After I heard that I am so down in the dumps and depressed. I don't know what to do with myself and have no last resort now. Please help!!!
I am not sure that I have a guaranteed successful solution for your problem. Assuming your doctors have also tried a course of steroid injections, you need to weigh the risks of surgical scar revision versus no additional treatment and just time to allow full scar maturation.
