Acne Scars

I am currently taking doxycycline and yasmin for my acne, and it seems like none of them are working to help clear my skin. I'm still sporting several small cysts on my jaw line and eyebrows, and though they have grown considerably smaller in size, I'm still breaking out every few days. This is only my first month on this treatment, though.
Does anyone have any recommendations regarding creams or gels that eliminate existing acne scars?

For the acne scars, treatment includes various skin creams like azelaic acid, corticosteroids, tretinoin cream and laser treatment. 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.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
