hi! how long have you had the scars? It looks like yours are pretty fresh and most likely will go away as your skin recovers over time. They don't look like keloids/thick hypetrophic scarring so I don't think you would qualify for steroid injections.

Hola Seniorita!

Your scarring reminds me of Boston Celtics Bball player Marcus Smart. (His is worse than yours)

I have much scarring and hyper pigmentation as you do. I use a salicylic acid face wash and used to use Retin A and Differin. 

Salicylic acid increases cell turnover, which ride scars faster, as does the differin. As for getting it easily, try the salicylic acid first. It is easy to find at any store. Differin or a Retin A cream is prescribed for scarring and blackheads. 

Best wishes,

WadeX
