I'm 35 years old been picking my face my whole life. I had a flesh colored clog that I tried to remove. Normally after my scab falls I let my skin dry up and it scabs over a few times and I'm left with PIH that eventually goes away.

This time I tried a diff approach - after scab came off I applied neosporin to the broken skin and covered with a hydrocolloid bandage. When I took the bandage off there was a red shiny indent.

Is this permanent? Could I suddenly have caused a box car scar? And what can I use to help heal it?

It could be a scar but it may just also be a temp. red mark. If you apply an exfoliate it could fade it. That being said the red may also go away and the indent could stay. It depends, hard to say without a photo.
Best of luck though Smile

It seems to be flattening out slowly. What product would you recommend to speed healing?

I've been leaving it alone but maybe once it's flatter I'll want to start applying something to speed the healing.

Let it heal for awhile, then needle it. That will help it fill back out. Read up on dermarolling scars, CIT for scars, or needling scars. There is a lot written on this in this forum. Look in the Skincare Tools and Do It Yourself Section...also a lot on the Internet in general.

I think I'd use products that aid in hyperpigmentation,

im a big fan of acids so of course I'm going to recommend them to you too.

Any AHA's should do the trick. I just wouldnt scrub it or anything.
