Please do not settle for “it will go away”

Posted , 2 users are following.

I had this from the age of 4 until I was 6. Thankfully it didn’t go to my face but I was covered from the neck under which bled and became infected. My doctor told me it would go away and I am now turning 21 this year and I am left with severe scarring which I doubt will ever go away. Keep at the doctors and ask to be referred to a dermatologist.
