Patient : After having an embarrasing tattoo removed from my chest i was left with lumpy raised red scars which, in time have gone down a little. Now over a year later i am still left with raised hard red bumps where the are was 'treated' with tattoo removal.I have used bio oil and other moisturising lotins, have tried concealer and i never go swimming and i wear my tops backwards so that the high bit which should be at the back covers my chest area. I have low self esteem because of the scarring and i hide my body from my husband which of course strains the relationship we have. My local doctor has said that they cannot do anything about it because it is my personal choice to have and remove the tattos, but now i dont know what to do or who to turn to for help. My question is- what can i do to get rid of these horrible scars?
