Have dent on forehead, no known cause. Reason?

Hi there, I recently had a dent appear in the front of my forehead. It is about the width of an index finger and narrows as it moves down towards the lower part of the forehead. It's around 2 inches in length and a depth of a few mil. I am 42 a non-smoker, don't drink alcohol or any soda, never eat red meat or pork and always avoid junk food. Take a lot of regular exercise and do my best to lead a healthy and active lifestyle. Have you ever heard of this? It suddenly appeared almost overnight without a head injury. Thank you. Regards, Mark.

Dermatologist 's  Response

It seems that you are having linear depressed scar like lesion on fore head.

It may be linear localised scleroderma, also known as en coup de sabre.

Thorough history, keen examination and investigatios along with skin biopsy would be helpful to reach to the diagnosis.

For that ,you must consult dermatologist.

Immunosuppressive agents, phototherapy and physiotherapy might improve.

Local calcipotriol may be helpful.

But , all under guidance of dermatologist.

I hpoe you got my answer.
