Scars or Stains
All too often, patients refer to staining, or discoloration of the skin as scars.
They are not. A scar is a dermal process (deeper in the skin) that resulting in depressions (depressed or boxcar scars) or deeper pits (pitted scars). Scars are not helped much, if at all, by any topical remedy. Stains, on the other hand, are.
