They are just tiny clogged pores it looks like. You can try a scrub to clear them out, but I honestly wouldn't worry about them, they're barely noticeable.

Some of them are scarring and some are not. Red marks are the worst! I've had some for over a year now. My derm keeps telling me to wait because they may fade. Red marks like these are vascular, they aren't something you can scrub off over time. You can get IPL laser for them, which is supposed to even out the tone of the skin. But you should wait as long as possible. They should fade more and more over time.

Hi everyone! Man I'm so sorry that this has turned into a giant depressing thread! I hope everyone is doing well.


It was 6 months last friday I believe. I feel I am back to normal. There is a slight indentation where the one gigantic hole was, but I'm

confident that no one notices this besides me. I feel like myself again, actually even more outgoing than I was before since I hid myself for the past year. If it gets even better that's great, but if it doesn't I'll be okay with it.


I think it's hard to believe you will get better. I couldn't believe my mom, my doctors, any of you I've messaged with that came out the other side okay. But I did! And this experience has taught me a lot - doctors don't always know best, ask questions, when in doubt sleep on it, and appreciate everything you have right now because it could be worse, it has been worse. I'm stronger for it, which is what I was hoping for.

In Topic: Very Inflammed After Acv: What Can I Do?

Stop using the ACV. I'm fairly sure that method helped me to get the most severe acne I've ever had. I think it's too harsh for the skin on your face. 

Stick to aloe to calm your skin, if you have a head on them go ahead and pop but be gentle and then dont touch it again so it can heal.
