Scar Tissue

Ok so when I was 22 I had a breast reduction so I have that wonderful anchor scar on the bottom of my breast. And when I was getting in the shower today I noticed that my scar is dark in pigmentation...its never done that before, it doesn't hurt, it doesn't itch its just a dark reddish brown. I was wondering does this normally happen when your pregnant? Does the pigmentation of pre-existing scars become darker from the hormones or something?

  • It could be irritation such as yeast that could have been brought on by your hormones. I had my redution post pregnancy so I can't tell you if it's pregnancy or not.
