Hi
Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum.

The marks on the body can be removed by using a local applicant cream like Mederma, No scars,melalite etc.
If the scars still persist there are procedures to remove them by laser, dermabrasion etc, for which you need many sittings, Visit the dermatologist for this.

Hi!Shwetha kv,
Welcome To HealthcareMagic forum,
Shwetha usually marks due to infection subside on its own..and if they do not then just apply a hydroquinone based cream at night .Invasive procedure might not be required .If the marks are over exposed area of body then also use a good spf sunscreen in the day time.
take care,
