    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    When I was 13 years old I came down with chicken poxs for the first time. The 2 blisters that formed on my face poped. I did have a scar after the blisters poped , but now I'v noticed a white looking wart forming were the chicken pox scars are. Is this normal or should I see a doctor?
    I have been thinking of having them removed due to it being on my face.

    Hi Anon_161994,

    Please see a dermatologist for help if you have any new lesion or growth as it's not possible for anyone to be diagnosed or treated over the internet.

    You may want to use read this article:
    Skin Changes - Topic Overview and take a look at the Adult Skin Problems Slideshow before your doctor's visit.

    Take care!

    - Annie
