In brief: You can try

Red marks should be left alone as the new vessels heal the damaged tissue.
Brown marks fade on their own after a few months; you can use a topical hydroquinone but it's messy and you can end up looking worse for it. The key is managing your active disease. If topical benzoyl peroxide has not cleared you in two weeks, get with your personal physician.
