acne marks

Every time I get a blemish, on my face or body, it leaves behind a red mark.  I never pick at them and simply let them dry out but once the swelling goes down and they are dry I have a red mark in it's place for months.  Is there anything I can do to prevent this?  My wedding is in two weeks and I have a large red mark right on my chest.
Thank you

There really isn't anything for redness, especially on the chest, that's likely to help in 2 weeks.  Topical Vitamin E, makeup, and avoidance of picking or rubbing are best.

Your skin doctor may be abl to recommend some topical treatment for the face (such as an antibiotic cream.)

Good luck!
