I get shots in the past before,of course,but I never see a scab/scar! 1.So,is it possible to get a small scab/scar?

2.Do people get a scar after every single time their skin get damaged? For example,I had a scar at least 10 years ago,is it still there since it isn't noticeable anymore?!

It's possible, but not real likely!

Not all folks develope "visible" scars, but anytime the skin is damaged, it can be detected, if you're looking for it!

LOL Pitt, we have a few of the same cat scars (btw, your cat rocks for not going down easy with the dawg) ... but yeah, when I was in elementary school they gave you this monstrous vaccine that left an amazing war wound - me and my DH were in school during the same time frame (3 years apart) and he has the same war wound from his vaccine (over 30+ years ago). Mostly anything on my face peels off, no scar TG! Anything on legs, slow to heal but leaves some kinda shadow unless it breaks skin. Elbows/arms - leaves war wound. Hands - peels, no scar. Guess it depends.

I've still got a scar on my arm from one of my immunization shots I had as a child. Can't remember which one.

AND I also have hard tissue lumps in the subcutaneous tissue on my stomach from injections.
