What would a doctor give you for red marks?

Say you have very little, if any, active acne, but a lot of red marks. What would the doctor give you? The same stuff he'd give you if you had active acne? I've had this bad acne fora while and its been like 8 months now and the red marks still aren't going away and I ave some scarring. Don't know what else to do.

My doctor prescribed me Doxycycline (antibiotic) and Tretinoin (generic of Retin-A). The antibiotics keep new acne from forming and Retin-A helps with breakouts but also forces the skin to exfoliate rapidly which overtime will make your marks fade out.

I started a thread where you can see my results after 5 months. Retin-A is very effective but you have to have patience.

Did you get an initial breakout? I have a lot more red marks and scars, but your results make me wanna go back to a doctor.

My doctor said all i can do is wait it out.

Same here. I then did a TCA peel and got rid of everything that hadn't faded even after two years in ~5 days of downtime.

And everytime I visit my derm all she said is wait.

Do you guys think some red marks have shallow indented look?

I asked if she cant tell which are holes and which are red marks.

She said she cant tell because I'm still on accutane.

What was that suppose to mean?? I thougth she could easily tell the difference.

Anyone???

Wow! Congrats!

Do you have scars on your face? Does TCA peel really does nothing on rolling scars?

im thinking of doing a tca peel. i feel like its the only thing that can actually remove red marksssss....ughhhh

I have TCA sitting in my room waiting to be used.

I've gotten acne for 8+ years now, and this left a ton of red marks.

Would laser remove these marks?
