Last year i had a baseball injury on top of my nose between my eyes, At first it looked like a normal injury, i could see some pink inside. It was a circular shape. I didn't see a doctor, i thought it would just heal on its own. it did, however it was still circular, and noticeable. Recently i went running outside without any sunblock, and i noticed that the scar got real darker, and i think it was sunburned. So then i went to see a doctor and they gave me a cream with a mixture of salicylic acid and hydrocortisone. I have been using it since, and im not sure if it is working. I also bought another cream on my own that contains hydroquinone 2%. Supposed to fade spots. I think the mixture of the two creams helped, but again it gets lighter, and then one day it seams dark again, with some peeling and you can see some pink inside. This is really bothering me and i was thinking of getting a chemical peel treatment. Will this help, or is there anything out there that can help me?
