    Hi im 14 years old, and have being salf harming for about a year now.

    My parents an friends seem to comment of me wearing long sleeves even in the burning heat. My mum always asks why im self concious about my arms, but i just change the subject.

    Im asking for help about either some excuses i could use for wearing them, or maybe some stuff you can buy to help hide scars. Might the scars heal eventually?

    thanx alot for your help

    my friend's the same age & has exactly the same problem with long sleeves.
    could you say that maybe you fell off your bike or something like that?? or if you have a pet could say that, my mate has a dog and uses that as an exuses and most people dont question it.

    you could probably use concealer to cover up scars, it might not cover them completley if you have pale skin but it makes them fade in more, so theyre less obvious

    i have the same problem, concealer works for me
    you can also wear arm bands instead

    :hug: there are some oils, ointments, etc that you could buy as well. they do sell scar reducing products, i am not familiar with them though.

    Also try a product called Moderma. It helps diminish scars over time. But if you don't stop hurting yourself, then you will always have either scars or wounds.
