1. No tanning! That will 'disguise' the red marks perhaps, but it will also tan them and make them more persistent.

2. Time alone will fade them, though scars on the back seem to (in my experience) take longer to fade than those on the face.

3. A series of low strength chemical peels might help your red marks fade. You'd need help for that, or find an esthetician who'd do the back area.

4. Using a baby's hair brush on your back will help exfoliate your back gently and possibly help fade those red marks.

5. There's a great thread somewhere about red marks and body scarring with suggestions on how to improve them. You might check it out.

Hope those suggestions help you out a bit. :)
