    Ahhhh! I got a stupid pimple on my forehead and i guess I was scrubing too hard this morning and at the end of the day, its totally flat but its all dark now. I hav a dark spot right there!Its not actually dark black, its dark brown i guess. OMG! How do I get rid of this? Its not a scar though because it looks just like i put some coal on my face. Well, any suggesstions? Thanks

    When a large pimple has died apply Aloe vera gel on it, in a couple day it will just peel off and go so fast.

    IMO, Wether you have 1 big zit, or tons of them it is still annoyig as hell. Its either you have absolutely none or a whole bunch, having a few sucks just as much as having alot.

    I have the same thing! It's been a while since the pimple came off (about 2 weeks), so can aloe vera still help me?

    first of all C_Sauce is talking about 'a stupid pimple', that does not mean that he only has ONE pimple he could as well have many pimples! and hes talking about a problem which he does not have a solution to, but to which maybe others do. whats wrong with that? after all you probably come to this board to find a solution for your problem also!

    Keep loading Aloe Vera gel on it, as soon as it dries blob more on.

    Honestly this works best for zits that have just left marks. It should dry it out and it will peel off after a couple days.

    I had a large red mark but 2 days after I popped it it was completely gone.

    Try Eucerin cream. You can buy them at drug stores.

    Correction:

    I meant Esoterica, not Eucerin. I heard Mederma is also good although I have not personally tried it.

    in the past, i went to a dermo who said those dark spots will fade with some time, maybe a few weeks, maybe a couple months to completely go away. i i used to have a bunch of them and now i'm spot free.

    Will it still work? It's been nearly a month and it's still there. I'm african american if that helps any. I don't know if it's a scar or not. How can I tell?

    Unhealthy:

    I am not sure if you were addressing the question to me, but in response to my suggestion (Esoterica), I have used this for a period of 3-4 months and the red scars and freckles I had (for years) faded. Of course, I am looking into another round of acne breakouts at the present so that means I have fresh new scars (sigh). I also found out that Neutrogena Healthy Skin Lotion (in white container) helps even out the tone and color of your skin.

    Goodluck!

    I have had a few of those dark spots left after a pimple, its like dried collected blood. But they have always gone away in time.
