30 cuts on each arm and second chance prom help ASAP - April 12th 2012, 12:36 AM

This thread has been labeled as triggering, particularly on the subject of self harm, by the original poster or by a Moderator. The contents of this thread might therefore not be suitable for certain sensitive users. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

I have 30 cuts on each arm and second chance prom this saturday I have a date and I really pretty dress but my arms are going to look like hell. Can someone please help me and tell me how to make them heal faster or what to use to hide them and do not say braclets that would not look good.

And I am not looking for a lecture or other ways to cope I'm just looking for what I asked on how to make them less noticable


Don't lose who you are, in the blur of the stars
Seeing is deceiving, dreaming is believing,
It's okay not to be okay
Sometimes it's hard, to follow your heart
Tears don't mean you're losing, everybody's bruising,
Just be true to who you are

Vitamin E cream helps scars fade quicker, but it is gradual. Maybe you could put foundation on your arms, but a pretty long sleeved bolero jacket, or wear a long sleeved lacy top underneath the dress. I hope you find a way to feel confident at your prom, and I'll bet that you'll look beautiful.

I can't think of anything for scabs, sorry. Maybe a bolero jacket would be the best option. I know how it feels. I really do.

Same issue I used a thick rhinestone bracelet that overed most of mine and the small part nobody noticed. Last year I had a small sweater type thing, I forget what they are called, people just thought I was cold. Hope for the best for you and I hope you have a great prom night.

If they're on your lower arms you could always opt for elegant long, ladies gloves?
Or as has been suggested, a bolero jacket.
