Where did your childhood scar come from?Watch
The first one was when I was about 2 years old: I was sitting on a tin or something and apparently I slipped off and hit my chin on the desk. Needed stitches apparently and although I can't see it my mum says there's still a mark there today.
The second one was when I was 4 and I remember it clearly. It was the christmas holidays and my parents were putting all the christmas stuff back in the loft. My dad dropped an old stool (NOT an old ****, an old stool as in something you step on) and it fell on my brow. I needed stitches and a pretty unsightly bandage for a few weeks, and to this day my left eyebrow doesn't grow quite as well as my right eyebrow, although I'm fine because I have thick eyebrows and I trim them anyway, so you won't notice easily.
My third and most significant is when I was having a cyst on my neck removed. It's just under the back-side of my head where my hair ends and I'm pretty sure it's a mild keoloid as it feels very rubbery and ungrippable (if that's a word) to this day. Not to mention it was originally a group of serrations that evolved into a single bigger scar. Either way, it's better than that horrible, annoying cyst that came before it as long as it doesn't become a tumour and start growing again like some keoloids can.
I have had other moderate injuries in the past few years however as I have entered puberty I have developed some sort of increased healing and I don't seem to be able to form new scars. Back in 2018 when I was 15 I fell over and scraped my leg on a desk and it was pretty bad. After a few months the marks just disappeared. Another time I had rubber burns that looked pretty deep but completely disappeared after some months. Also in 2018 I managed to smash my foot against a table by accident and messed it up; I have no scar to prove it somehow. Unless my skin is literally cut open by a doctor I don't seem to be able to scar at all. I'm also muscle/cardio-orientated skinny and have an un-humanly strong immune system so I put it down to a combination of fast metabolism, high blood cell count/high levels of blood in general and high testosterone level which promotes all of the other factors as well. I'm not saying I have high testosterone to be hard, having high testosterone levels and being an alpha are two different things.
Either way, that's my full scar story.

I When I was about 5 years old, I fell and hit my forehead, luckily the scar is not visible because the eyebrow covers it.
When I was like 8 or so I had a surgery in both ears because they weren't close to my head and didn't look good. The surgery wasn't done perfectly and I needed to redo it .
Later, I fell from a swing and required a few stitches in the chin...
the arms ones were from where i tripped over a razor wire fence when walking home
leg from where burning plastic landed on it
