If I use proactive dark spot corrector and retin a (tretinoin) 0.25 can it help with my acne scars?
No: Neither will touch actual depressed scars, not can anything else. At best, you can hide your hyperpigmented lesions and even this is likely not to be very successful. Get your active disease under control, and if you wish, get seen by a dermatologist or plastic surgeon who can deal with the scars using a filler, laser or microsurgery. ...Read more

1st Fix Acne: If the 'ice pick scars have pigmentation (dark discoloration) associated with them, the products may help subtlety with the pigment, but not the indentations. These types of scars are typically difficult to treat. If they are not very deep, Microdermabrasion is used, but again, results are modest. The first priority is to have the acne under control. If so, fractional resurfacing works best. ...Read more

NO NO: Neither of these will be of any benefit for anything. You are foolish to use these, especially during pregnancy. Topical steroid cream is safe to use during pregnancy and MAY reverse vitiligo.

One can test about 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period. An Ob-Gyn doctor can evaluate any persistent or worrisome symptoms. If a woman gets her normal regular periods, then she is not pregnant, and a test is not needed. ...Read more
