I'm not entirely sure if this is the correct forum to post this on, but here goes.
As you can see in the picture, I have an extremely mild burn on my hand which is healing. It doesn't hurt, but it's really bothering me because I got it exactly 4 weeks ago today and it still isn't gone. I also don't know why there is that massive red ring around it -is that part of the burn?
It's actually making me pretty insecure as even though it is very small, it is very noticeable and my Mum actually pointed it out and said 'That hasn't healed yet' in a sort of angry tone. When I take photos etc on my phone and do writing tasks it is obviously visible and it's sort of embarrassing.
Anyway, why has it not healed or disappeared yet? I read that it should take up to 2 weeks. It's strange seeing as it is so minor and I remember burning myself - my hand touched the grill for literally 1-2 seconds, perhaps even less than that.
Thank you for reading, it would be great if you could help me out.
