Scientific Rx: Acne is best managed by topical benzoyl peroxide 5% 2x/day; if this fails, prescription strength rx from your physician. I am very sorry that your acne was not managed appropriately when it could have been, and that you ended up with scars. Only a physician can treat these with microinjections, microsurgery, laser or dermabrasion. Best wishes for your successful treatment.
