Will pink circles on the forehead heal?

Hi I recently was in an accident where I wasn t wearing my seat belt. My forehead hit the steering wheel on impact, now I have a pink circle smack dab in the middle of my forehead. As an African-American man (even though I m light skinned), should I be worried that my original color will never fully return to that spot ? It has been a little over a week and I have been applying aloe vera gel every day since it happened. How should I be treating this, and how long should I expect it to fully heal ?

Hi,

It is ecchymoses on the forehead due to the collection of blood in the dermis and below the skin after hitting the forehead. Do not worry..it is temporary. It may vanish I. Few weeks without any treatment. However, take a vitamin C tablet to enhance the resolution.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Ilyas Patel, Dermatologist
