Are you taking enough vitamin C to help with the scarring? Since you are not that low on zinc, I don't think that's the main reason for your scarring but of course I'm not a doctor (not that most doctors know this stuff anw, like you said). Loss of collagen and genetics can play a part in how your skin heals after acne. So basically if you give your body the tools to facilitate healing (like adequate zinc and vitamin C), you may notice an improvement esp. on fresh scars. I'm trying out red light treatments and high frequency to help with elasticity and collagen formation.
Btw, vitamin D deficiency can also play a role in skin texture. Have you been tested for that?
Supplements: inositol, DIM [not as frequently now!] digestive enzymes [don't need them every day anymore, only on cheat days], herpanacine & vitamin C with rose hips/ low acid [not every day], regular sun exposure for vitamin D3, superoxide dismutase (SOD) enzyme supplements, magnesium citrate [sometimes].
Lifestyle & Skin Care: Low histamine diet, avoiding unnecessary stress, balancing skin's PH (using Image Ormedics), using distilled/ filtered water to wash face, occasional high frequency facials...
