In brief: Sure

This has nothing to do with kidney stones.
Most stones are calcium-based and even then, the problem usually isn't so much excess calcium as insufficient water intake. I'm sorry you ended up with acne scars -- today this is 100% preventable. Truth be told, my hope is that as you approach adulthood, you have greater access to and a better relationship with a personal physician. Best wishes.
