i think i might have the answer for red marks...

i used to have a lot actually still do...

the only product that ive seen work so far is just a little bit

of scar healing ointment...polysporin...i know its mostly

for ur body for scabs and stuff but it worked for meeh...

fruit acids peels are a no-no cos especially for people who

have sensitive skin like me, those peels just gives me bigg

red blotches all over my face...hydroquinone is pretty okay too

its really strong and peels off like crazy but its better than the

fruit acids stuff...hope it helps...

The ointment will most likely clog your pores and cause a breakout. However, in small doses on active spots, it does help the healing process and reduce redness/scarring. If you can find a cream version of the stuff that is less likely to break you out. There is a member on this board who advocates exfoliation+neo(poly)sporin cream as a very effective method for treating active acne and red spots.

I haven't tried.

Aloe vera is my healing treatment of choice.

I don't know why people who haven't tried the ointment keep saying that it causes breakouts. I use it everyday and didn't get a single zit from it. And yes, IMHO, Polysporin is excellent for red marks 'cause it actually fades red marks away.

in my red mark experience...nothing topically will help..unless the topical exfoliates.

I'm starting to think exfoliation is the fastest way. But not everyday because then you'd just be rubbing raw skin.
