Conditions with symptom: 'lumpy scars'
i am 19 and i have recently had a major knee operation, and unfortunately have got keloid scars on them!! i really don't mind about how they look, there not that big and lumpy, but they are so sore and are really affecting my physio. they gave me ultra sound which softened two of them but one of them if right above a metal screw so they couldn't do it for that one. is there anything that people know of that i can use on them? silicon sheets seem to be the most effective on the internet, and i tried them but because of the location of the scars they just peel of. and unfortunately i am allergic to plasters so i cant stick them down. i need help quick because there getting bigger and sorer, very quickly and i am very worried about them!!

I had a TCA peel on my arms 3 years ago and ended up with red scars that are still there they are not as bad now have used everything now trying KOJIC PEEL also had electrolysis on my chest at the same time and was left with white patches quite lumpy i cant get any help from my doctors as was told its my own fault .
i have lumpy discharge i discovered it after having intercourse with my partner there were all lumpy bits left on him it was white in colour a bit like cottage cheese errr what is it ??
i have a very thick discharge thats abit lumpy, its usually white but when it drys goes yellowy, i dont know what thrush is but it sounds scary, i am too scared to tell anyone, am i normal and what can i do to stop it being so lumpy?..
Sounds like a normal vaginal discharge. Many woman have this problem. I have been having it for years now and my Obgyn can't really help so don't feel embarassed. I just use panty liners throughout the day to stay fresh and clean. Be aware! If the discharge has a foul smell or you get any irritation down there, then it would be time to worry, usually it's an infection or STD.
Is there anything to get rid of or help fade scars on the bottom? I'm 17 and female. Sometimes I've gotten blemishes and spots then ended up trying to burst them. Resulting in swollen bumps and scars, I've changed my diet and have been exfoliating, this has reduced the amount I get. I've also gotten this on my upper back. The scars really effect what I wear during summer, any suggestions?
i am 22 and my cum is lumpy like really lumpy, is there something wrong with me ?
I had this, my doc said it was nothing and just happens sometimes!
I feel your pain I'm about the same age been docs had it tested all fine and got kids so not a problem there but still dosnt look normal with jelly like lumps init been like it for about 4 years now
im 15 and i have self harmed for the past two years and i have some nasty scars on my arm, im mixed race aswell so my scars go darker because of my skin colour, i cant find a way to cover them as i cant find a foundation/concealer dark enough for my skin colour, i know that i should face the consequences of cutting but i dont want to be judged by everyone i meet for my scars.. does anyone know how dark scars can be covered other than wearing clothes that cover them?
hi think yours is OK cause have been facing the same problem as yours.Mind was since i was a kid cause like playing and always cut myself, turn to scars and grow darker. I always hide my scars n cover them with tights. have been treating them with different kind of products but seem not growing away cause of my skin colour and don't know way. My parents courages me is normal but people judge me of looking and makes me uncomfortable so think we are on the same path searching for solution to our problem.
What can I do to remove the acne scars on my back? Any home treatment? I have had acne since I was 10 years old and its left pretty bad scars and I am 15 now and it still remains deep. I really wish to remove these scars - it really gets in the way of my esteem. Please help!
Hello, I am 14 and have had acne on my left breast since I was 9. I have been through many creams/capsules and one of the latest being roacutane ( sorry if it's misspelt ). I got told by my consultant it would absolutely disappear. But it hasn't since it is just scars that are left. And they are really big and obvious and people point them out everyday and it's horrible. I got told that there is nothing to be done about these scars, but I believe that there is. Please suggest some ideas of what could be done about the scars thank you.
why dont you try rescue oil? it makes scars fade i use it and it works but you have to use it everyday
Im 14 and have been self harming since i was 10 and now im in yr 10 alot of people at school know i self harm so its making me think should i just walk into school one day with my sleeves rolled up? But i have some severe scars on my wrist and as my parents know i self harm but have not seen my scars i dont know what to do should i show my scars at school or not xx
Hi Rebecca, Please tell your parents and please see your doctor and get help.I am 16 and I am fighting cancer for the third time.It makes me sad when I hear of things like this.You have your whole life to look forward to.Please get the help you need.
I self harm as well. I am now 7 weeks clean from cutting. There is no reason you should be ashamed of your scars. You have as much right to wear short sleeves as anyone else does. If you're not ready for your parents to see your scars, maybe cover up at home and wear short sleeves at school? That's what I did, and when I became more used to people seeing them, it wasn't as difficult for me to wear short sleeves around my family. At first they were shocked, but they are now used to it. I wish you luck! And stay strong darling
