Pimple scabs/scars

By September 7, 2011 - 10:00am

I have two spots where i use to have pimples, one on my arm, and one on my chest. They won't heal! They're more like scabs that won't go away.. I haven't picked at them,but they just will not go away. I've tried everything from chemical peels, to aloe vera, just everything. they're about the size of a penny. its extremely embarrassing and i will not wear anything that is a v-neck shirt or anything that shows my chest unless im wearing a necklace, and i always wear shirts that cover half my arms. I know they're only two spots, but they're limiting my life, they're gross. How do i get rid of it? What can i do? Ive tried so many things

Have you talked to your doctor because the scabs should be falling off when their done healing? Do you notice anything else going on with your skin? How long have they been scabs? Have you tried Polysporin, a cortisol cream or Penaten cream? What about touthpaste and baking soda mixed together? I would start with your family doctor, you may need some kind of prescription ointment. Good Luck
