Dermatologist 's  Response

Chicken pox can leave dark marks as well as scars.
You can opt for:

1. broad spectrum sunscreen in day time
2. skin lightening creams with kojic acid or ones with retinoid at night
3. also you can go for regular chemical peels at a gap of 4-6 months.
4. in case you have scars fractional laser is the best treatment available.

Take care.
