Need help....on new medication....fading acne scars? Also Stievamycin gel?

Hi,
I am a 30-something year old female and have been fighting recurring acne on my chin area for what seems like EVER!!!!
I have been on Minocin for years now, as soon as I start to slack up my dosage, I flare up again, always on my chin, and always very large cysts, the very large very painful blind pimples.
My largest concern is scarring, I have no pitting, but I am very fair, and I have large red scars all over my chin. I wear makeup to cover /conceal at all times, and frankly am just plain tired of it. I went to my Doctor, to see if I could get something for to fade the marks, and she gave me Stievamycin gel, which is a Tretoin and erythromycin mix.

Anyome use this? Any ideas on fading past scars?

The only thing the doc has prescribed for me is Retin A, but the retinol literally burned my skin. It worked great for the red marks though. Takes about a month to start kickin in however.
