Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum.
The scars of chicken pox are quite deep. Any medicine is not likely to help you. For complete removal of scars, laser or dermabrasion is best for you.

Hi!Tanu arora,
Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum,
Unfortunately no topical preparation or creams are going to help you in this.You should go for lasers.There are different kind of lasers used for this ,like co2 laser,erbium yag laser or fractional lasers.Find a good center where you can get these lasers .It requires multiple sittings depending upon which laser is used.
Take care,
