Scar treatment

Recommended Posts

Hello every one I have been suffering with acne for as long as I can remember. I am currently on prescribed medications for my acne Im using benzoyl and tretnoin (sp?). I alternate them at night only instead of using one nightly and one in the day it tends to dry my skin too much. It seems to be working for me Im starting to see a difference in my face. However, I have scars from my previous breakouts. I was a picker! LOL!! Just had the bad habbit to pick on them especially when I was stressed at work my forehead was a mess! now I have red markings left behind and they are mostly on my cheeks and some on my chin but dont know what to use. Is there any OTC stuff that anyone has used for scarring? If so how good did it work? Just want to know what anyone here would recommend for scars.

This isn't scarring and you should use the correct forum in future, try the red marks forum for better answers

It is a scar may fade away with in time unlike others but it IS a scar. How else is it left but by acne.

"Macules or "pseudo-scars" are flat, red or reddish spots that are the final stage of most inflamed acne lesions. After an inflamed acne lesion flattens, a macule may remain to "mark the spot" for up to 6 months. When the macule eventually disappears, no trace of it will remain"
