I have a chickenpox spot on my hand. How to remove it?

I have also pigmentation on my hand.


First, you will need to identify what type of chickenpox scar you have on your hand. Atrophic scars leave pits in your skin, while less-severe chickenpox scars will leave dark blemishes that look like acne scars. Once you've identified what type of scar you have, you can read through the VisiHow article below to determine the best method to use to remove the scar from your hand.

Pigmentation is a separate issue. It can be caused by excessive heat, injury, some medications, stress, or diseases like jaundice. There are also two types of pigmentation: hyperpigmentation, which leads to brown or tan spots on the skin; and hypopigmentation, which leads to light spots on the skin. You can talk to your dermatologist about more advanced treatments, but there are also natural remedies you can try, like rubbing a slice of potato over the blemish or by mixing equal amounts of vinegar and water to wash your hand regularly. Try each of these remedies for two weeks each; if you don't find any improvements, talk to your dermatologist about other treatments you can try.
