Red stained skin?
Mar 23, 2002
Hi. My situation is is that I have had about 4 blotches of red/brown marks which have been on my face for over a year now. I am an African American woman with a complexion that is about the same as Tyra Banks. I do, of course, get left over marks which are usually dark brown after a pimple would leave. And I usually will apply some hydroquinone to the spots to speed up the process and they will go away on their own.

But this is different. The 4 marks that I have are more reddish/brown and I have had them forever now. If I get a glycolic peel, it just makes the marks redder. Then they will tone down to dark brown/red but they never go away. And I have had numerous and it doesn't help.

Does anyone know what the HECK this is? It's really bothering me and I have to wear makeup every single day (and im a college student!). I have also notice the pores in the red areas are bigger then other parts of my skin. It's almost like these marks are filled with blood (grrr). And I exfoliate but they never go away.

Anyways, I hope someone can help me out in figuring out what this is because, they're definitely not your average brown marks. Thanks.
