Hi. As you have found, picking at acne spots seldom improves their appearance and can lead to delayed healing time and scarring.
See your doctor for a course of oral antibiotics and/or a topical retinoid gel to clear up your acne. Use a gentle cleanser such as Estee Lauder's Sparkling Clean cleanser for oily skin, or one by La Roche-Posay.
Most acne scarring is superficial and will fade within one year. The appearance of stubborn scars can be improved with a chemical peel or laser treatment.
Eloise.
