Post They won't go away!!

I had a bad breakout for about 6-8 months across my chest. Yasmin BC helped to clear the acne up, but now I'm left with over 20 red marks - VERY embarrassing.
I'm on the BC, and I take a multi-vitamin every day (with 100% vit. e, I think). I've been applying Finevin, 20% azelaic acid cream, to it morning and night for about 2 weeks now. I exfoliate the area in the shower and use Phisoderm body wash.

Would it be too much if I use aloe along with the azelaic acid?

WHAT ELSE CAN I DO?? I'm desperate and want this to go away!!

Yep, you can use Aloe with the azelaic acid... i don't see why not. But i can't really see how aloe would help. I would suggest either finding a vitamin C cream of some sort, or vitamin e. Both are known to replenish the skin and help it repair.

But there isn't a miracle fix that's going to get rid of them overnight. On average, even with Vitamin E cream and AHA/BHA treatment, it takes a couple of months at least. But they WILL go away eventually.

So a vitamin C or vitamin E cream would help with this?

What kind should I get?

Has anyone ever used this method with results?

Thanks
