Moving forward I saw the "craters" the pics prob don't do it justice but honestly... I think you just need to give your skin a solid 3-6 months to heal and you may not be as you were before but you'll be very close...
also you are using an intensive amount of products... copper peptides, petroleum jelly... and others... all these things are too much for your skin now... manage your acne... moisturize and do nothing else.
good luck to you sir

Take vitamin C and zinc to help build collagen.
Depending how they heal, you may need excision to 'fix' them. It will leave another scar but it will be less noticeable if done correctly. Ironically, TCA cross may actually help the new scars if they turn out to be boxscars, but I'm not sure TCAx helps BS's, it's used for ice picks mostly. Of course don't do anything yourself from here on out.

I have permanent scars from the TCA. However, now I am having considerable issues with acne.....
What do the scars on your back look like? Little white hypertrophic bumps? Are they all over?
They are hypotrophic, white and scattered. A few keloid-ish scars. One or two depressed scars..... Also tons of tiny little bumps... They're not zits....

This is a very interesting topic. I revere your courageous postings about your incident. Not too many people are brave to do that. So far, I have read many tca cross stories both good and bad since the spring of 2012. I will be ready to perform a self administerd 50 tca cross this September, after my vacation, on a few ice pick scars. I will see how it reacts from there before applying more.
Any advice you may offer to a fellow acne.org companion?

Well, I honestly don't recommend doing it yourself...Have you ever been on Accutane? If so I don't recommend doing it at all.
