Have many dark scar caused by acne. Any medication to remove scar and reduce acne?

Hello, my name is Ghizlane. I am 17 years old and I have acne on my skin. I have tried many skin product, such as Neutrogena cleanser, Clean and Clear cleanser and Deep Clean Neutrogena. None of these products worked for me. I also have many dark scars caused by acne. Even when I don t touch the acne I still get dark spots or scars. I was wondering if I need to see a doctor about this problem, since acne is considered not a big of a deal. Is there any medication or product you think can help fade the scars and reduce acne? Thank you for your time.

Its better to start with Vitamin A tablet(50000 international unit) daily along with tetracycline hydrochloride (500mg)
6 hourly for atleast 3 months along with topical tretinon (0.025%) in the late evening for one hour ..then wash it, day by day you go on increasing the time of application till the obvious dryness is visible...

Since you are worried about the dark spots you can consult a dermatologist and get salicylic or glycolic peel done along with oral Azithromycin250mg twice daily for 3days in a week for consecutive 3 weeks and topical Clindamycin and Nadoxin1% Once daily.
