Thanks for writing in.

You can use a salicylic acid and Glycolic acid based facewash . Some examples of good over the counter facewashes which contain the above and reduce the oiliness include Neutrogena XXXXXXX pore cleanser and Normaderm cleansers .

There are no creams available for treatment of scars. Please make sure you first differentiate between a scar and a XXXXXXX . Scar is change in the texture of skin with pits in the skin and marks are changes in the color of the skin only.

You should XXXXXXX a Dermatologist who can differentiate it for you. There are many options like Lasers , Dermarollers and chemical peels available to reduce the scars and marks .

Thanks and Take care
