I had a scar on my spine (no surgery) that was shaped like -v-, with the dashes at the top of the legs of the v. I also have had those hairline scratches, mostly on my face- but I also had what felt like a thin needle go across my face one night while I was lying in bed. I was facedown, so anything external could be ruled out. My guess on the hairline scratches is some sort of skin condition. I also, a year and change ago, woke up and found what I can only describe as a needle mark on my left arm, right in the crook of my elbow. Location, size and shape ALL screamed needle puncture, except for the fact I had been nowhere *near* a needle or IV.

Within the last year or so I noticed a few scars which I have absolutely no explination on how they have gotten where they are. One is on my shoulder, it is actully 2 scars next to each other. They look like surgery scars running vertical on the rear of my shoulder, about 2.5" long and then about 1" away another scar running the same direction about .5-.75" long. They are thin and look similar to some arthroscopic surgery scars I've seen and I'm sure I've never had surgery there nor any cuts of any kind.
Another scar is on my forehead right above an eyebrow that looks like a vertical cut and it impedes hair growth. I've never had any cuts scrapes or anything there either.
I also recently saw a bunch of what look like old burns or very large acne/poc marks (these aren't indented though) on the back of my neck where the skin is much lighter, doesn't tan much at all. Hairs grow oddly out of the area. I never had these 3-4 years ago when I was cutting my own hair and used a mirror a lot to see the back of my neck. These kind of look like burns people give themselves (or others) with a hot bic lighter - that is about the size of them, there are about 5-6 on the side/back of the neck.
I had 2 scars that were bites that healed badly due to their nature. They stayed much lighter as well and had an odd texture. Even after 10 years these were very prominent and I would see them every time I undressed. IDK when I stopped noticing them, at least 6-8 months ago, but with how bad they were 3-4 years ago, I can't see how they could disappear to the point of not noticing them at all.
I have a number of other scars from as young as 8-9 years old that I can still see and a major one from about 10-12 years ago, which doesn't look much different than it did 1-2 years after I got it. The oddest thing is that the 2 scars on the shoulder and the one on my eyebrow are in the same place as what my sister has/had (she had surgery and she was injured there) - which I find very odd.
Has anyone else ever noticed scars that they can't account for or scars that have mysteriously disappeared and have any explanation for them? I've tried using some medicinal scar healing lotions/creams/balms/vitamin oils/rubs on some scars to try to help them heal or disappear and they haven't done anything, so I can't see how a very bad/ugly scar could disappear the way it has w/o any kind of treatment.
