DEAR DEIDRE: WHILE everyone else spent the summer in shorts, I cover up because I have a hideous keloid scar on my leg.
The scar is big, red and raised. It formed after I had an accident on my bike.
I’m an 18-year-old lad, and it’s also stopping me from getting a girlfriend because it makes me feel so ugly.

I can’t bear to look at it, and I don’t want anyone else to see it either.

DEIDRE SAYS: You’re self-conscious about your scar but when other people look at you, they’ll see the whole person, not just one blemish.
