I was wondering if anyone else has the same kind of scarring I have on my chest and back. I have searched many websites but found no real information on my problem. What I have is little white spots (lumps?) that are left after a pimple heals. They look like like little white heads, but are not. I found one source of info. that described it as "perifollicular elastolysis" - it said that the marks persist for months to years.

Some of these marks have improved but have never totally went away. Also, I tried to tan this summer (big NO NO, I know), and the marks didn't tan at all - they stayed white. When I am not tanned they kind of blend in with my normal skin tone, but are slightly raised above the skin surface.

Does anyone else out there have this problem?? Do the spots eventually go away and does the pigment ever return to normal? I have had these scars for 1-2 years.

Any responses about people who also have this problem or know if it will eventually go away, please respond. I can't find any info anywhere.

Thanks for any responses.
