How to get rid of pockmarked acne scars
Acne is a skin disease that arises through a long process. Acne occurs due to clogged pores and excessive oil glands. Clogged pores and excess oil will cause micro blackheads. If these micro comedones are not treated, they will become comedones or commonly called brunts. If blackheads are not treated, they will become papules. Papules are shaped like nodules and if not treated they will cause inflammation and bacteria that trigger acne.
Acne that appears on the surface of the skin is more susceptible to bacteria, especially when you touch it frequently with dirty hands. Acne can become inflamed and grow bigger and even cause infection and inflammation of the skin. When inflammation appears on the skin and is not treated immediately, it can damage the skin structure, and when the healing is incomplete, it will leave depressions in the skin or pockmarks.
Skin pockmarks that arise due to inflamed acne cannot disappear by themselves. Pockmarks themselves have a variety of shapes, usually concave like indentations or holes. Pockmarks will be very annoying, especially when they are around the face, which will greatly interfere with appearance and cause a lack of confidence.

Consultation with a genital skin specialist to deal with pockmarks is the best choice, this is because treating pockmarks needs to be done with special treatment.
