    So this has always been bugging me. At the moment I'm studying for my a-levels and I want nothing more than to study medicine. I have the grades & experience etc. However, on my forearm I have 4/5 quite noticeable self harm scars. They are from a while ago & they've faded but you can quite obviously see they're self inflicted.

    I was just wondering, would this effect my chances of becoming a doctor? I'm scared it will become a problem for me, I tend to use dermablend even though they're quite mild just to cover them up, would using this be a health & safety issue in a hospital environment?

    I don't think it will tbh. You could just say that you hurt yourself while climbing the tree/it was the cat
