post-acne bumps under skin - how to get rid of them?

Hi there, first post, so glad you all are here! I am 34 and had mild acne forever. Last year I developed a more moderate bout on my left cheek. It has died down now, except it has left brown marks and "lumpy" textured skin - which seems like zits that got "stuck" inside my skin. Does anyone have any idas (or previous threads) on how to get rid of this? I am also trying to lighten the brown marks (I have latin, olive skin) but the lumps are what gets me the most. I will be so grateful for all your thoughts!

its a scar or an under the skin pimple. oral antibodic works on the under the skin bumps. if its a scar a cortisone shot will make it go down. you go to the doc for both
