    Need help identifying childhood injury
    An_253100 posted:
    I have a small, quarter-sized scar on my forehead and a corresponding one on my wrist that happened as a child. No hair grows on the forehead scar and its essentially a benign little bald spot bump. The wrist scar looks like 3 circular incisions as if there were a skin graft.

    I've asked my parents about this, only to be told I had some kind of "accident" as a child without any other elaboration.

    Does anyone have any ideas as to what this kind of injury might be the result of? It's not painful or anything, so I'm mainly curious what this possibly could have been.

    Here's the full album with the pictures:

    I think only your parents can say for sure, but to me, it looks like possibly a cigarette burn- it is really hard to tell the size of it and I may be (hopefully) completely off-base.
