<p>In answer to your early question about picking scabs (sorry I missed it!), the answer is unequivocally, No! I know that some people, particularly teens (not one anymore!) do that for some weird fun, but that's not, not me... </p>

<p>Something similar happened to me, Cher. I had scabs on face that formed as a result of squeezing pimples (I know, I never should have done that).</p>
<p>Anyway, after I washed my face, a couple of the scabs fell off. I did not think anything about it until minor scars began to form. Now I am left with two scars that look like small valleys.</p>
<p>The lesson? Never wash your face too vigorously if scabs are present. However, I am not certain how to prevent accidental bumps that eventually turn into scabs: that is a tougher call.</p>

I, too, suffered small, indented-type scars; however, they are on my face. I had a terrible case of the chicken pox as a young adult, and the marks especially concentrated on my face. Even though I did not purposely pick at them once they began to scab, one day I had had enough with the lotion I was applying and decided to gently wash my face with a cloth. Mistake! Some of the scabs came off, and I was left with round, indented scars. Yes, they have somewhat faded with time, but a couple still look like moon craters.

Comet, I do not mean to sound insulting, but do you pick the scabs? If so, perhaps that is why they form scars. If not, then maybe additional bumping to the area causes the scabs to prematurely dislodge and form a scar. I know I have two scars on my right knee: one above the area and one below. One formed from a fall on ice, and the other from a car accident. Luckily, both have faded with time and are barely visible. [br][br]Do your leg scars tend to fade? I hope so. If not, maybe try applying vitamin E to the area and see what happens.

[img=380x507][/img][br][br]My shins seem to take a real beating. Every bump produces cuts. Then the cuts scab. Then the scabs scar. Then the scars become red streaks. Just wondering if others have the same problem with shin bruises, scarring, and streaking? & any advice on how to prevent the scabbing & scarring from the inevitable bangs?
