i know how u feel. happens to me all the time, but if u put palmers cocoa butter on the scar daily it will clear up fast and blend in with your natural skin.

Antibiotic cream/ointment (NOT Neosporin, try Polysporin) and a bandaid/plaster. Will not remove them completely immediately but will help provide soothing moisture to the area to help it heal. Use sunscreen, too, so the melanin in the PIH won't get darker and stick around longer.

You should moisturize it a lot. So it wont peel. But i also used Cortizone and it rdeuced the redness. Not recomended for long term treatment but it will reduce the redness for those big days.
