How to get rid of these scares caused because of chicken pox ?

I got chickenpox in 2008. Now I am 15. The chicken pox left two scars on my face . I tried many natural home remidies but it doesn t even work a bit. Recetly I saw a video about how to get rid of scars and it said to apply a lemon juice. When I applied a lemon juice on my skin , it burnt my skin. Now I got a burnt mark on my face. Is there any natural way to get rid of this scars othar than laser treatment.

Home remedies can sometimes backfire, please be careful next time. Other then laser, there are cosmetic treatments like microdermabrasion, dermaroller etc which help in reducing scars. The idea behind them is, to gently peel the top layer of skin that has scars, and fresh skin looks better.
You can visit a cosmetic clinic in your city. And enquire more abt this. Its a common proceudure these days.

If you dont find it comfrtable, then just learn to live with it, lot of people have it, +they fade with age. And you are only 15, there are good chances of them reducing in few years.

My five yr old granddaughter has chicken pox and i cant remember if i had it or not. However, in our young days i remember my sister having it but i do remember not catching it from her. So therefore,this being so contagious i should have gotten it from her! so i must of been ill with the chicken pox when i was much younger to a point of not remembering.Is it possible to live with someone that has chicken pox and not catch from her?The Doc that saw my granddaughter was worried on my behalf cause I m 50 yr old n i told him that i never had the chicken pox that i remember of n so he wrote me a script for the vaccine.My other sister said we must of gotten it when we were small and we did not have all the symptoms of the Varicella..meaning no scare marks.Is that possible? haha 2 questions thanx for your time!!

I ve dark spots from chicken pox on my back for years now. Occasionally, I will get pimples that become dark spots that are impossible to get rid of. They have spread to my shoulders and the back of arms. I have tried everything to get rid of them. I was even exfoliating the skin on my back every other day so they would lighten. Nothing is helping. How can I lighten and get rid of the dark spots so that I can buy a tank top and wear it in public again?
