Hi Sachin,
Deep or infected lesion of chicken pox can make scar on body.
Specific medicine for this scar is not yet invented but do not be frustrated
Some surgical procedure like- dermabrasion, microdermabrasion, subscision and laser, can remove your scar.
I like to suggest you that wait for 6 months to take any procedure because scar might be fixed within this period.
with regards.

Pediatrician Dr. H. Santosh's  Response
Chickenpox in adults leave scars in some people.
They gradually fade.But may not go completely.
Don't try to scratch the scars,
Vitamin E capsules may improve healing of scars, you can also apply the Vitamins E dissolved in oil present inside the capsule over the scar areas.
Eat fresh fruits and vegetables.
If it still don't go, there are many cosmetic procedures you can try.
