Taking treatment for sebhoeric dermatitis. Having faint marks in the area. Permanent cure?

hello, i have recently been treating sebhoeric dermatitis on both sides of my nose . it has mostly been cured; the soreness has long gone and dry skin does not present itself anymore. but i have remained as self conscious since there remain on both sides very faint marks where the patches of dermatitis were. can these be gotten rid of for good? Many thanks

Hi mellingsdjm,

Surely, those marks(post inflammatory hyperpigmentation) will disappear as time passesby and it requires complete and wholesome treatment of Sebhoerrhic dermatitis per se. If it does not disappear automatically you need to apply dissolving creams after consulting a dermatologist.. ..Hope you will recover quickly.
