    Scab Question Pleaase Answwer

    I have 3 scabs on my face and one of them was hanging halfway off and then i scratched my face (not realizing) and it came off. The skin underneath is more a little bit lighter pink then the other skin around it. Will the skin contine to heal to make it the same color as the surrounding skin?? PLEase help

    There is a chance another small scab will appear where the scab had not released naturally. Yes, the light pink skin will eventually return to normal color. However, many times scars are lighter even after they are healed.

    It is very important to not pick at zits or other places on our skin.

    Sometimes we must have a procedure done on places and have no choice and may end up with small scars.
