Scars/scabs after acne - is there a solution??? Recovery?

I was doing something I should not have, but its already done. I popped my back acne.

Its actually kind of gone now, BUT I have these reddish and brownish spots. Its how this stuff looks like when it heals. It is taking AGES for it to heal. Right now most are in the BROWN (as if something was there at some point) stage.

Is there a topical solution that would help my skin recover and not create new acne? Anything at all?

you could ask your derm. for epiquin. it has 4% hydroquinone in it and is excellent for brown spots. i think it takes like a month before you see results but it's worth it =]

When I had a scab from picking my face I would apply aloe vera gel atleast acouple times a day. I also use vitamin E oil too. Pure honey is good for healing also. Don't pick the scabs off either, leave it on and it will heal better. If you pick the scabs off you may get scarring.
