From what I understand, BP does not help get rid of red spots and may even exacerbate them.

Check out the Red Marks forum for many suggestions ... I use retinol, others use AHAs, and there's a very popular baking soda/apple cider vinegar thread ... do a little experimenting.

A decent resurfacing agent would be good for you I think. A mild peel to start then you could up keep it with something like green cream (as long as you are not trying to get any pregnant)

After being clear for a bit, it took me a while to start to fade the marks, like QOH suggest some experimentation is always needed.

What I have found is that renewing your skin cells more often help with what ever regime you use.
