Coming to terms with a scar

What's the best way to cope with a scar ? i'm finding it very difficult to come to terms with, the scar is quite small and will eventually fade with time like a previous scar did, but this scar is in a prominent place and i feel so self concious about it.
I can't really hide it as im male although i may give it a go, any tips would be well appreciated as i feel as if my lifes on hold at the moment and it's hard not to be depressed.

Re: Coming to terms with a scar

I know exactly how you feel. I am very self concious also. I just recently decided to give up covering up to see if I could clear up better/faster. Which means I have to face public, with a naked face. Soooo hard. I stay home alot (stay at home mom) and only go out if I have too. Sometimes if its too much I will cover spots up to go to grocery store or such.

I wish I had an answer for you. The coverup/spot hider I use is not in stores and probably not good for the skin. It's called IGEA and it is extremely thick and concealing. You only need a very very little dab. I only use on spots, absolutely not all over my face.
