A 21-year-old female asked:

Do you have any experience with clearasil (benzoyl peroxide) pads, lotions or creams? i would buy it because of the mild acne problems and marks.

May be enough: This is reasonably-priced benzoyl peroxide with some other ingredients, promoted by disk jockeys in the usa and elsewhere since the 1960's. If your current regimen is not helping, you may wish to visit your physician for guidance on comprehensive management. The marks won't disappear -- if you need this, a dermatologist may be able to help.
