Vaccination scars

Shows in the summer when my arms are bare

I have never really thought about this but I was inoculated as a child and it has scarred badly. It is maybe an inch in length but as I grew up with it and I do not face it constantly, I have never thought about it. Occasionally, in summer and my arms are bare, people look at me and ask what I could have done to myself. They have never seen a vaccination scar so badly. I also have scars left by burns over the years.
