How Do You Remove Bite Marks?

Facial Scar Treatment
Sorry for you experience. Some good cosmetic treatment options will help camouflage the facial scar. Sun block and sun avoidance are the first step. Based on the single photograph, the scar is noticeable primarily due to the darker colored areas. Treatment may include skin brighteners and/or tretinoin. However, you'll need to see a dermatologist or plastic surgeon to help determine appropriate options for you.

WOW thanks for the photo! Are you still with him, I hope not! My only suggestion is local care, scar creams, maybe IPL therapy. Best of luck. Try and find a non cannibal boyfriend.

Bite Mark Removal
The only thing you can do for the bite mark at this point is use sunscreen everyday ( SPF 30 or higher), and use some sort of scar product ( Mederma, Scarguard, etc.). Overtime it should fade, but the sun will leave the area alot redder then you want it to be, so protect it. Since it has only been a month, you just need to be patient - it may take 3-6 months for it too fade and, hopefully, dissapear.
