Are they scars or temporary marks?? Please help!

Recommended Posts

Hey all,

Before I get to my question, here's some info on me: I'm a 14 year old (young, I know) Wisconsinite, and have had chest acne for about 3-4 years now. I was on Minocycline for about a year and it was working great, but then my derm. told me to go off it for 2 months. After one month, I noticed some breakouts. So I'm now taking it again. My question is...whenever I get a zit, it doesn't go away. Well, the zit does, but there's ALWAYS a mark. I don't pick my zits or squeeze them, the only time I touch them is when applying BP or once in a while if I'm trying to see if they still are a zit or if they're a mark (If I can feel it, I assume it's still a zit).. anyways, will these marks go away? And if so, when? Can you get scars lazered off?? By the way, if anyone's looking for some good acne medicine, Clean & Clear Continuous Acne Control Cleanser works great as a face wash, and Clean & Clear Persa-Gel 10 (which is benzoyl peroxide) works great as well. Please let me know about my question!! Thank you soo much!!!

:D) Angie

agreed, i got like 17 red marks on my chest from chest acne. doesn't seem to go away either. but they slowly fade away with time. some of them faded but i think you should try hydroquoine 2% 4% or vitamin k cream. These creams lightens the redmarks
