I have cuts on my thighs/wrists/and shoulder from a pencil sharpener blade. Will they scar? How badly?

Depends... How many times have you cut in those spots? How deep were the cuts? And I'd advise you not to cut anymore since it can do horrid things and bring upon scars. I have had cuts from a sharp stone I would use and the cuts on my thigh aren't going away too fast but are disappearing. The only cuts that have truly stated are the ones on my heel. I hope the best to you

I mostly use pencil sharpener blades and they have left me with scars. However they aren't raised and the ones on my arms seem barely visible. I can wear vests and tshirts and people won't notice them because they are really faint. Bare in mind that they are around 6-12 months old and that I'm really pale so maybe if you were more tan or of darker skin then it may be a lot more obvious.

However on my thighs they show a lot darker and I find that they take a lot longer to scar in general, but that might be because I have more fat on my thighs than my arms. They show a lot darker and I have to avoid wearing shorts shorts so they don't get noticed. Bare in mind these scars I have range from about 11 months to a couple of days old.

I obviously can't judge about you cutting and I don't even know your situation but hopefully it turns out right soon. The best of luck to you :heart:
