I got scar marks due to chickenpox recently. They are fresh and maximum 12 days old. Some of them are darker caused due to premature fall of scabs. What is the best way to get rid of them within 1 month?

Hello, firstly it has to be seen if you have scars or only post inflammatory hyperpigmentation. If it is only hyperpigmentation then it can be reduced with a combination cream of glycolic acid, kojic acid and arbutin. Alternatively mild peels can also be tried. Opt for these only after consulting your Dermatologist. Meanwhile start using a broad spectrum sunscreen of spf 30. Please do keep in mind that medicine is not magic and neither does your body work on deadlines,hence, it is not feasible to expect a certain quality of results in as short as a month.
