What should I do about acne scars and oily skin?

See a dermatologist. Acne scars or scars in general are permanent..There is no cure for scars, but few things can be done to reduce/minimize the sizes/shapes of scars...Derma-abrasion/resurfacing, laser treatments etc..May help. Topical meds may help reduce oily/acne skin, which should be done first. Consult your doc... Good luck.
Acne scar revision. That's 2 really unrelated questions! acne scar revision involves determining the types of scarring you have and matching which of the many available therapies to your scarring. Remember, improvement is the goal! as for oil, topical preparations like oc8 can help. Low dose Isotretinoin is the best thing for oiliness.
A few options. First, get the acne under control to prevent further scarring. Retin-a can dry skin, but you don't want to use it too often or at the concentration that makes your face red and peel. The scars are difficult to eradicate, especially if they are deep. I have seen improvement with a multi-modal approach of dermal fillers, excision, subcision and fat grafting. Often skin resurfacing is used, too.

I have been suffering with acne, scar and oily skin for almost 10 years. I have been to many doctors but their medication did not work. Help me please.

Go see Dermatologist. Almost 10 years? That means you started having acne at 9yo? Anyway, dermatologists specialize in skin disorders. You didn't mention which medications you've taken & failed. You didn't mention what doses & for how long you took each one. Therefore, it's impossible to give you any specific advice.

Try OTC meds. The most important thing is to wash your face gently twice a day. Do not scrub. Then apply an over-the-counter acne medication (there are creams, ointments, pad- whatever works best for you). Don't pick or poke or pop the pimples! pimples are at their worst when your hormones are changing in your teens. If it is not better, see your doctor. Read more...
