Thank you for posting this query.

Before suggesting you a treatment, I would like to ask some questions

1. Are you still getting acne? or you have only scars?
2. When you say scars,are you referring to black marks left by acne or depressions in the skin?
3. Are these scars or acne present all over the back or only at shoulder blades, center of the back?

4.Are you on any treatment?
5. Do you have similar lesions on face too?

In the meantime you may start with Clindac A lotion twice daily after consulting your physician.

Hope i have answered your query.I will be available for follow up.

Thanks for the query.

I would recommend Cap. Doxycycline and Clindac A lotion.

Consult a dermatologist personally for the medication and discuss the option of chemical peeling.

It will help in both active acne and the marks.

Also discuss about isotretinoin.

Wishing you good health.

For chemical peeling I have already discussed with skin specialist at VLCC,panvel.but I read from internet that scar and acne come again after chemical peels.So Is there any medicine which will cure scar and acne gradually !!!
the one Clindac A lotion is for scar or acne

Thanks for the follow up.

The treatment that I have suggested is for acne only and will reduce it gradually.

Acne may come back with any treatment, not just with peels.

Peels if done properly work wonders on acne and post acne pigmentation. Pigmentation once resolved does not come back unless you get new acne and new acne pigmentation.

A combination of medical treatment and peels is the best.

Wishing you good health.
