Get a real Rx: I suspect that these internet remedies are cruel pranks. It's not going to touch either active disease or scars. If topical benzoyl peroxide as tolerated has not cleared your active disease in two weeks, get with your personal physician for prescription-strength rx. Only a specialist with a laser, filler, or microsurgery can make the scars less visible.
