how long ago did you have a scab? cause dude. when i was younger i would get scabs on my elbows from falling down and stuff. and the skin would be pink for like a week before it started looking normal again.. so yeah i guess you can get scars.

Re: scars

If the scabs have only just healed, the skin probably will look pinker or redder than normal. It should go back to how it was in a couple of weeks. Herpes does not usually scar, it sometimes does where people have picked a sore and damaged the skin further, or the sore has become infected etc.

Re: scars

my son had some horrific lesions, but no scars. all turned pink and the one's on his scalp left bald patches (the last of which is FINALLY growing hair ) but not one scar. I agree with beaker, it should heal and look normal pretty quickly.
