i'm completely new to this forum; i looked around a bit, but i couldn't find a topic that already discussed this. i only joined to ask one question, so i thought i'd just create a new topic.
so, a few days ago, i decided to stop picking scabs. i have my weak moments, of course, but overall it's not going entirely bad. i just got sick of all the precautions i had to take, in order to hide those scabs (which are hideous, of course). three days ago i told everyone i had sunburn, so i had an excuse to swim with a t-shirt. that became a hard excuse to maintain when everyone decided to go swimming at night... :)
anyway, most of my scabs are fading, which is good, but i've got scars everywhere. they're dark, purple-ish spots, and they're really ugly. does anyone know a way to make them fade or (rather improbably) disappear? it's no use trying to stop picking if i can't wear dresses and bikinis because i'm covered in scars.
