How do I get rid of this?

Recommended Posts

Use sunscreen daily, apply multiple times per day, this will stop it getting any more red and allow it to fade. Tretinoin to increase cell turnover.. available on prescription :)

@ally.m83 I am moving this to hyperpigmenation sub. You have PIE or wounding post acne. This is very common and some have it for a year after. Vascular laser is the quickest solution but also expensive. Some people do Glycolic peels to lighten things, ... other's use nightly retin-a/(or)differin/(or)tretinorin. Castor oil would be more appropriate than coconut and that does not work for some. Take a look at the full list of treatments in the FAQ - at the top of the hyperpigmenation sub, it's pinned.
