I've finally graduated to the red marks forum because I'm finally getting clear! (not 100%, but 70%). I remember last fall being so jealous of those treating scars because I couldn't even think about that yet.
Anyway, now that I'm here, I have a few questions. For those of you that have fading red marks, did they turn brownish gray first? Mine are starting to do that and I hope it's a good sign. How long did they remain after they turned brown?
I'm using Mandelic Acid, ACV, and topical Niacinamide. (Sometimes I also use pure Aloe from the plant). Unfortunately I still have to use BP because that's what's keeping me clear. Am I using too many topicals?
I'm also taking Primrose Oil, Zinc, Vitamin A, Colostrum, and Spiro.
Finally, has anyone had success with Calamine lotion? I hear that it also helps with red marks.

Anyone else like to add their experience? I'd love to have more data

I have 2 giant red marks on my nose, one from prematurely picking a scab off. It's been almost 2 months for that particular one and it's still red. I've never had this problem before; normally my marks are like yours and they go from light pink to light brown and then they slowly blend in. What does this mean? Why is this mark not turning brown at all? Is that good or bad?

I just started lactic acid peels and I exfoliate with a baby's brush to speed things along. I'm waiting for emu oil and copper peptides to come in as well. I'm hoping a combination of these will help them fade faster. Most have only been there about 3 months, but I hate them!
