I've had acne since I was 12 or 13 and I am 16 now. I started popping since that age and recently, my acne has gone from being terrible to just a few pimples on my cheeks. What's really bothering me though are my acne scars. Even if I don't have a pimple, there is redness on my face and it simply won't go away. I've tried loads of medications, but my cheeks are red at all times. I'm a guy and I have to use the Neutrogena concealer to hide my scars. Here are my questions:


1. I've been using the Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash and Clean & Clear's Persa Gel to prevent my acne and reduce pimple size, but is there anything I can add to that in order to fade my scars? I need something that's quick and effective and can be found in stores (over-the-counter).


2. Does Glycolic Acid work in fading scars and preventing acne? Could you find over-the-counter products containing glycolic acid?


3. Are there any over-the-counter products using sulfur that could minimize pimple size overnight? And are they even effective?


4. Can Retin-A/Tretinoin rapidly remove scars?


Thanks to anyone willing to help me out. I'm new here and this is my first thread ever. :]

Your situation sounds pretty similar to mine. Can you post some pics up?
