My little boy got chicken pox bad at 1 and 1/2 years old. 8months later hes still covered in whitish scars! How long will these take to go!? He has soooo many!

My dd, now nearly 5 had bad chicken pox at 3, I can still see the white scars, sorry. But they are flat now but just don't tan.

DC both have two scars each that I think they will have forever (little dents on their foreheads). They get less and less obvious every year, but I don't think that they will ever disappear

My son literally has them all over his torso :-(

They will probably have faded by the time he is old enough to notice/care x

I have a few on my collarbone from when I had it about 29 years ago but unless you know where they are you really have to look for them ifyswim.
