wouldnt say its that bad. Use some Glycolic Acid Peel and see if that helps.

your red marks look like mine. how long have u had them for? I've had them for about 1 and a half year. some do fade in time but because new pimples keep adding up on top of those red marks. it just looks worst and worst. currently i'm using scarzone for red marks and polysporin (sort of the same as neosporin) for active acne. Hopefully it helps.

Oh I also just started using 30% glycolic acid peel. I've already had 2 peels done at home. So far haven't seen much of an improvement. You can only do one peel a week. So I'm gonna keep doing it every week for two months and if it doesn't help I'm not gonna do it anymore. Everybody's skin is different so what works for some might not work for others but you won't know unless you try. So i suggest you try the glycolic peel but follow the instructions very carefully. good luck

thanks for the replies all.

hey keisha

ive had these marks for YEARS now, but like you said, new pimples come, and keep leaving red marks so its hard to break the cycle

luckily now im on accutane, and it is stopping new pimples from coming, so after a while, i will try this glycolic acid.

please keep me up to date on how ur peels are working for you.

thanks

Ahhh that's what I have on my forehead :o I was wondering whether they were still spots because I've been doing BP gel and they haven't been dying down so that must be why... Just have to wait for them to fade...
