User rating for this question
Hello, I've used ASAP gel for my old zit two months ago and all it did was peeling the area and I still have a scar ( a red area) on the place of the zit. Any suggestions what should I do?

Brief Answer: Wait for the pigmentation to fade over Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for posting your query on XXXXXXX Healing and scarring leave some degree of pigmentation. The pigmentation fades over a period of time. Since, the lesion has healed, leave it alone, do not remove the scab (if any) and wait. Thanks and take care Dr Shailja P Wahal
