Ask your doctor for a topical retinoid called Retin-a, which will heal both active acne and post-acne scarring. This can be used in conjunction with oral antibiotics, if active acne is still present. Retin-a can cause a bit of sensitivity, especially at first, so use a bland soap-free cleanser such as La Roche-Posay, Vichy or Cetaphil.
If you cannot access prescription medicines try Palmers Cocoa Butter Scar Serum, Bio-oil or Clinique's Post-Blemish Formula.
Best Wishes, Eloise.
