Forgive my frankness: Acne is a chronic, serious, non-lifestyle-related disease that can (and must) always be managed by a evidence-based medicine. Home / folk / pop remedies are at best supplements. If benzoyl peroxide has failed, a physician's care will be required. If you are responsible for a young person's physical / emotional health, you have a duty to get them seen for acne now. ...Read more
Maybe?: The reason you hear so many different treatments for toenail fungus is because there is no perfect, sure-fire treatment that works 100% of the time. I've seen vaporub work, as well as other natural oil remedies, but very rarely.

Scars...: Are permanent and cannot be removed. Scars take some time to mature, however, and don't assume their final appearance for 6-12 months. During that time, avoid sunburn or tanning.

Soften it: Putting drops of hydrogen peroxide into each ear canal 2-3 times per week can keep the wax very soft. This way it will come out of the canal on its own over time.
