Do scars turn to Bumps over time? - November 10th 2011, 02:34 AM

Last night after seeing my grades, I bite myself again. It was pinker than usual.
The scars on it went almost completely away for no reason at all.
But, I've discovered bumps. First a tiny one were i bite, than one on my ankle and 2 on my arm.
Is this part of it?

Scars for deeper injuries can turn into bumps, for most scars, though, they end up flattening out (at least this has been my experience). Also, it probably varies from person to person.
Stay strong, and PM me if you ever need anything.

The bumps are likely the scar but what was there before isn't. A scar is a healed cut or wound. And seeing as it probably wasn't cut seeing as the mark went away fast, it's probably just because it was irritated from the bite last night, But to answer your questions some scars are raised like a bump but they aren't too far off the skin usually and others are flat or partially sunken in, it depends on depth as well as how wide the gap from one part of skin to another was. For example, the scars on my wrist are raised because there was hardly any gap because they were made with a thin razor blade but my friend has a scar under her eye from when she was bit by her dog as a kid and it's more obvious and a little lower than the skin because it was a big gap as well as it's on her face which grew as she did.

I believe that some injuries can heal and form bumps but others just heal flat. I believe that the term for this is keloid. I tend to heal both ways. Some of my injuries (not even depending on the depth of the wound) have healed raised and some of healed flatter.

If you are concerned about it maybe you can go to the nurse at your school and show her one of your healing wounds and ask her about it? It is important to remember that we are not medical professionals.

Anyway, I hope this helped in some way and if you ever need to chat feel free to pm me.
