In brief: Limited help

These products are mostly benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid which are both pretty good for starters.
If you have acne on your trunk, or if you're not clear in two weeks, get with your physician for prescription-strength treatment. It won't touch your scars, and the fact that you have scarring (sorry it was neglected) suggests that probably you'll end up needing prescription-strength rx now.
