How do I get rid of chicken box scars completely? or even lighten them to blend and not be seen?

I had experienced chickenpox at the age of 10-11 and I developed scars (2 scars) on my face after the incident and they are really bothering me even after it has been years since I've had them (about 5 years) but still there and seen.. I have tried: I have tried using bio-oil and Vitamin E face creams - I used them on a regular basis at first but then later on a couple of years slowed down but, I still use Aloe-Vera face wash and some creams. I think it was caused by: The scratching of chickenpox blisters, which I really badly regret

How to remove spots caused by peeling chickenpox on my face?

It is not advised to peel chickenpox spots off your face, especially when the wounds have not fully healed. That will only cause more marks on your skin and the holes will become deeper and harder to resolve.

It is ideal if you will just wait for the scabs to fall off on their own. After that, you can apply your regular scar ointment such as Contractubex to help the skin recover. Taking in food that is rich in Vitamin C will be very helpful as well because that will help in the faster repair of your skin and it helps in the formation of new and healthier skin cells.

Vitamin E in itself improves overall elasticity and health of the skin. This also prevents and minimizes extreme skin dryness and irritation. More so, vitamin E reverses skin aging as it rejuvenates the skin giving one that youthful glow.

Vitamin E and Aloe Vera indeed improves cell regeneration which helps combat scarring brought about by chickenpox and other skin diseases as it helps to gently slough off or remove dead skin cells. This also helps reduce pain and inflammation on the affected site.

You can only apply the Aloe Vera and vitamin E oil on the dried or scarred skin to avoid infection. You can prepare the mixture by simply peeling off Aloe Vera skin to reveal the sap and then scrape it off with a spoon. Mix Aloe Vera with vitamin E oil and then massage it on your face in gentle circular motion. Leave it on for 10 to 15 minutes and then rinse it off with mild soap and warm water.

Hey! Can I ask you if a chickenpox could be Okay last for a week? If so, how can I make it last for only a week?

I have chickenpox for about a week now. I am tired of waiting for it to dry off. I am wondering if there are ways to make it dry for just days. I have these tiny blisters on my face, trunk, and my back. I haven't got any blisters on legs and arms. I am putting on this acyclovir cream to help ease itch but I guess it isn't helping. I also have this wound that has a crater on my forehead and I know this can be a scar on my forehead. How can I make my chickenpox last for just a week and how can I cure scars using natural remedies?
