But now im left with these marks/scars, i dont even know. Not to mention i had 3 cyst on my left cheek which i have recovered from but left a bad scar.
Here are a few pictures:
Does anybody recommend i use anything? Iv been reading that vitamin e can help with these (gel from the capsules)
I think it looks worse in this picture than in person because that was under flourescent lighting, but whatever

Sorry to say but any topical isn't going to do much to scarring. Retinoid products like retin-A are one of the few that has a proven effect. Vitamin e has been proven not to do much anything but for some reason these believes on some products keep living... Chemical peels are the only thing I can recommend as home treatment from own experience. Very mild ones with no downtime can help with skin tone - stronger ones may make scarring slightly better with repeated use. You mustn't overdo them though.. let the skin rest between treatments if you decide to try them.
Another option is of course to visit a dermatologist and ask about laser treatments.. ablative co2 lasers can be pretty good at treating scarring. I just don't know if that's worth the cost with your scarring as it isn't so bad - you decide that.
Good luck dude One thing I can always recommend is to avoid thinking of your scars and enjoy life but I know that's not always so easily done.

I also want to try turmeric powder with jojoba oil and apply on affected area. I can't wait to try these things and see what works for my skin. So far, aloe vera is doing a good job, but I want to try more things. I also want to try sweet almond oil to use just on my body. ^^;; I ran out of money, so I couldn't order it even though it is cheap, but I am broke I like jojoba oil better than coconut oil 'cause extra-virgin coconut oil makes my skin greasy.
Also, to the person who started this, I am sure sure that you fix those scars, but wait 'till you don't break out anymore. I can see that you had it very bad. I know the feeling ! Once those red marks fades, your skin will look better. Keep eating healthy (lots of veggies.fruits) for healthy looking skin.
YOu should do research how to treat your red marks and scars naturally.
