hola. first post. i was wondering if there are any other methods to get rid of or lessen the appearance of scars. i'm not really in the phase of seeing dermotologists and stuff for costly treatments. my acne is mostly gone, very few breakouts here and there, but my back, face, and some on my chest have lots of scars. i wash it alot, but that's it. and the neutregena stuff. can you help me? it really sucks not being able to go the the pool anymore! ](*,)

alpha hydroxy acids turn skin over faster, so they will get rid of the reddish spots sooner. Dilute vinegar (an AHA) used as a toner (if you search there are also some long posts on this), is probably the cheapest remedy to try. It'll take a few weeks, of course, to notice any real difference. These spots should also everntually go away on their own. I don't think there are any topicals that can get rid of pitted scarring though.

check out the scar treatment board. Peeps seem to use ACV {vinegar} and a "tape" method. Very cheap, both.
