Im Mexican/American. My parents and family are all fair skinned, and so am i. But in an effort to darken my skin a bit, i got sick and extremely sensitive to sunlight.
Now i have burned/damaged skin cells, they appear on my face, neck, arms and back. And they seem to be fading away (albeit very very slowly) and it's made me very very sad and self conscious.
I don't go out anymore, i dont seek relationships, i look away from people, and im terribly shy now.
I've been to dermatologists and they say it'll go away with time and prescribed me some weird kind of cream. Its working but its way too slow.
So im wondering if i should wear makeup to cover it until it heals. I have some very important events to go to soon, and i don't want to go because pictures are unavoidable and mandatory (a wedding and a few birthday parties) i look terrible in pictures and i hate my appearance.
Please help guys and girls.
