Scars in my ear from acne

A couple of years ago, I got many pimples in my ear and they left huge crater like scars along my ear concha. I've researched a lot online but I can't seem to find information about these scars. I really want to get rid of them, does anyone know how? I'm really self-conscious about them and I hate putting my hair behind my ears because I don't want people to be disgusted :smileys_n_people_15: Any help would be very appreciated! :)

Please Goto a dermatologist, These are directly in the ear cartilage. I am afraid to tell you anything like TCA Cross as this will not respond like skin. 

If it is not bugging you treating this area is difficult being your ear canal is there, cartilage, lots of oil glands, few blood vessels. 

Post these pictures on http://realself.com and ask the doctors there is you wish also for what to do. This is unusual and a difficult area to treat. Let us know what they say, it could be helpful to others.

If it makes you feel any better, there is no way I would ever notice those scars in your ear. Even if you pointed it out I would be like huh, if anything, that looks cool. I think you should leave it as is, it's absolutely nothing to worry about. I'm not just saying this, I really would not bother, I doubt anyone will ever notice this

These scars do not look disgusting, in fact, in my opinion, they look kind of cool. No one will ever notice them, unless you specifically point them out, trust me. I mean, when was the last time you really looked at someone's ear? I wouldn't waste my time/money on this.

I now see this was written in 2017. My bad.
