I'm desperate to get rid of these red marks

I've had acne since I was 12 years old and I'm now 16. It definitely shows with all the red marks and scars. Now I've finally stuck with Retin-A Micro along with Zithromax and I'm fairly clear. However, my face looks just as bad as always--just with no inflammation from active acne. It's still really covered with red marks that look a lot like acne.

So right now I'm exfoliating with this Gentle Apricot Scrub stuff, I can't remember who it's made by (the same company who makes the scrub that's supposed to be really good for body acne). I use it twice a week, but it doesn't seem to be helping much.

Is there anything I can try/make at home/ask my derm about?

I've been using Epidermx and Camilla oil-even the oil alone seems to do alot to fade the marks. Recently I've been using Copper Pepide Serum which has seemed to help even more...

Re: I'm desperate to get rid of these red marks

Neutrogena Healthy Skin Lotion is great! You can search it on this board, there is a HUGE thread on it, all about people who tried it for red marks. I read all about it, and went and bought some. Sure enough, it works just how everyone said it would. Within a couple days I noticed red marks fading (not all the way of course, but a noticeable difference). Also, though, I am getting microdermabrasion and AHA peels. Maybe the entire combo of all three is what has helped me, but all I know is that my red marks are fading drastically! :-) Hope this helps.
