See below: Tazorac (tazarotene) does not treat acne scarring. It is a topical retinoid similar to, but more potent that retin-a.

Erythromycin: No, the topical antibiotic application is meant to treat active infection or prevent infection which inflames acne, it does not improve the appearance of existing acne scars.

A depigmenting agent may remove the brown but you're more likely just to make a mess. Nothing you can do on your own helps the scars. I'm sorry you ended up like this.
