Manage acne.: I am sorry your acne was not cared for as it should have been and you got scarred. You cannot cure it, and you will need more than benzoyl peroxide to keep trunk acne under control. Ask your physician about adding an antibiotic. A specialist can remove the keloid when your acne is under control. Results are so so.
