Re: read plz

Hi Funky,

I got chicken pox just over a year ago. I'm 26 now.

It has left me with many indented marks on my forehead and one or two on my cheek. This is the last thing I need as I already struggle with acne!

There is nothing much you can do with the dents save for very drastic surgery which is not worth it in my view. The one exception being the Florida doctor who specialises in saline injections - can't remember his name right now, but he has a great reputation for offering a very cheap and mild form of surgery which is quite effective in filling in the dent 50% and it lasts for many many years.

As to the pink marks, these will fade shortly in any case. You can try aloe vera to speed it up if you really are concerned.

Re: read plz

All three of my daughter shad chicken pox at the same time about 17 months ago. My two oldest has ALOT!! And now you can't even tell. I was worrried about all the red marks too. But i asked my mom what she sis when I was little for the red makrs, and she said nothing. So that is what I did and they dissapeared. Probably a little faster than ours would because their skin is alot different, but I am sure yours will fade too. Give it time.
