I had the same thing happen
Byon 20 Oct 2008
I had the same thing happen to me. I haven't been out of the house in almost a week, except for absolute necessity! I had two abdominal surgical scars treated, and two non-acne scars on my face. One of them is on my chin, just under my bottom lip. It immediately turned into the weird white bumps, and within an hour I had grainy-sandy feeling stuff on the area. None of the areas ever had any swelling. Within a couple days, the area had infected pimple-like things on it, and was hard as a rock... rough... one big scab. Then it started peeling, and I realized today I needed Neosporin. Now its just red with one tiny scab left. This is HORRIBLE!!! I can't get my doctor's office to answer the phone (the nurses station; the receptionist won't help me.) My other areas got really red and ended up with tiny pin dot-sized scabs. I would NEVER EVER get this done to my whole face. It is not supposed to break the skin but it did, and I have no idea why. I'm not even sure I will continue treatments. I just want my chin back!!!! Does anyone have any more information about why this happened to me?
