Chicken pox indents

(4 Posts)

As the title says...does anyone have any experience of indents on the face fading? My daughter aged 3.5 had pox a year ago and still has quite a number of face indents (about 10-15). Some have improved in terms of depth, some are still as deep. Do they grow out as children age? My daughters are very noticeable particularly in brightly lit areas.

I know this isn't major but to me these marks are pretty severe and therefore upsetting.

Dd is 14 and a few are still visible from when she had it at almost 3. We tried bio oil but made no difference.

My son has them all over his body from when he had it 4 years ago. Not even fading.

Have they improved at all? I would say my dd had a very severe case and she has 7 between her eyes, 6 on her temple and a number of others dotted about. Surely they can't all be permanent? I've never seen an adult so marked?
