I was just wondering how do you hide you scars especially ones on your lower arms?
also how do you deal with going swimming or to the beach etc?
i generally always wear a long sleeve t-shirt or shirt and the scars on my lower arms are generally blamed on me getting drunk and falling over etc.
i havnt been to a pool in over a year and when i went to cornwall surfing last year it was pretty easy to hide because i always wore a longsleeve top and allways got changed in a toilets or something. it was pretty easy and has become something pretty simple in my life to hide.
i used to cut and the tops of my arms litterally looks like someones hacked at them but then i did it afew time on my lower arms(cuts and burns). i find it pretty easy now to hide them but was wonder how other people went about it.
umm. you can get scar treatment stuff from a drugstore. but that takes time. i wear long sleeve shirts a lot. and i keep my left arm close to my body. i almost always have my arm across my belly. even if i have a long sleeve shirt on.
ad for at the beach and whatnot. i have used coverup. but it doesnt last long, especially if you go in the water (plus i use to use the cheap stuff).
hmm ive been meaning to go to my gp for months now to see if i could hide them abit just enough to wear a t-shirt but then theres all the hastle of what happed, why i did it and i couldnt be doing with that, my family doesnt even know.
