Don't feel too bad. This is my scar I have to deal with and don't even like to leave my home because of it. I had to really look hard to find your scar. If you find anyone, please let me know because I need MAJOR help. I wonder if I need a steroid injection or excision removal. People ask me all the time what happened to my face. It's very unfortunate.

I feel as if an excision would work, but that's replacing that scar tissues with new scar tissue that could eventually lead to a keloid. I think you should keep trying to talk to Plastic Surgeons who specialize in this, some consults are free of charge. I know I thought my chickenpox scars would be with my for life! Until I wasn't afraid of doing something about it and I am so happy with the results. If you do get it excised I think the silicone patches would help prevent keloid formation. Good luck & don't give up!

Hi i had a small depressed scar between my jawline and chin, completely opposite to yours. It was difficult one to get rid off. I had scar excision in the UK and it went depressed again. I finally went to doctor shah in Chicago and he fixed it for me. I think you should send some photographs to him via email and book a Skype consultation to see if he can do anything to help you out.

Hi, Sweetheart 101 You should look up Dr. Angel Purdy in Pikesville, MD. I went to her for keloid removal several years ago and the surgery was successful. She's a Board certified dermatologist and specializes in treating scars. Rob
