Acne on legs

For the last two months I have what I thought was ingrown hairs turning to sores.  They are now looking like acne and leaving scars.  Any thoughts?

It would be unusual to have acne on your legs as acne normally occurs in oily areas such as face, back and chest. If you are shaving your legs do so in a warm bath when pores are open, use a new razor and a good quality shaving foam like King of Shaves. The scars are probably superficial and will fade but i would see your doctor to rule out a skin condition like psoriasis.
