Hello,
It may not be possible to confirm the cause of your symptoms merely on the basis of a picture. It seems that you have scarring on the face. Scars occur at the site of tissue damage .They appear as firm red to purple fibrous tissue that over time usually becomes flatter and lighter in color. They occur after accidental injuries,surgeries,burns and scalds .The few common types of scars are hpertrophic scars, keloid scars pitted ,atrophic or 'ice-pick' scars  and contracture scars .
Hypertrophic scars are red, raised scars that form along a wound.
Keloids are caused by an excess of scar tissue produced at the site of the wound where the scar grows beyond the boundaries of the original wound, even after the wound has healed.
Pitted scars cause a sunken appearance.
Contracture scars are caused by the skin shrinking and tightening, usually after a burn, which can restrict movements.
A clinical examination is necessary for correct diagnosis and treatment of your condition. Depending on the type and age of a scar there are a variety of different treatments which can help make them less visible and improve their appearance.
There are no medicated creams to remove scars; you have other options like surgery, where scars can be cut out and stitched up, a process called scar revision.
Laser surgery & resurfacing or Steroid injections are other options. A long term course of steroid injections under medical supervision, into the scar may help flatten and soften the appearance of keloid or hypertrophic scars.
This is merely an advice and not a substitute for clinical examination. Consult a dermatologist .I sincerely hope it helps. Keep me posted with more queries.
Best luck and regards!
