Chicken pox Scars PLEASE help me PLEASE
Hi. I really hope someone can help me

Im, 15 and had chicken pox ( didnt get vaccine) . it all went fine but when the scabs had come up i got a little impatient and thought tht just "helping it come off might quicken the process" i was wrong because i didnt know scratching the scab would be so bad as i presumed scratching the blister would cause a mark not the scab. i didnt know tht at tht time.

Now its over but 80% of all my pox have left marks ( spots with a dark outline) everywhere. i am so depressed and angry. i have to go to school with this face as well. =(

its been almost 2 weeks and i look horrible. Iv'e been told not to worry and tht the spots will go in a few months but i cnt help but think about it. Can't it go quicker. i feel so annoyed at myself

I am using the Eldoquin 2% Cream since 2-3 days without any success. I am very worried. Will i have to live my life with these wierd spots forever. Please give some advice as the doctor said that they will go in some months ( i cant wait so long it looks horrible! i need it to fade away asap.! i cnt go to skool wid 15-20 spots on my face!)

thanks a lot. Appreaciated

Hello,
Chicken pox scars take a bit longer to go but eventually they become more lighter with time.The treatment for these kind of scars includes various skin creams like hydroquinone, azelaic acid, corticosteroids, tretinoin cream and laser treatment.

You are already applying the hydroquinone cream and it is not advisable to use the other creams without a doctor,s prescription.If it still persists then you can go in for laser treatment, Chemical peeling or microdermabrasion. Avoid picking, harsh scrubbing, and abrasive treatments unless prescribed by a dermatologist during this period.

I sincerely hope that helps. Please do keep me posted. Kind regards.
