Hi. I've had acne since age 10, and now I am in my teens. Over the years I've picked at my blemishes but, until now, I haven't had any scars. Over the summer I had a sudden overnight breakout starting at my temple and trailing around my cheek. I used topical medication and eventually they went away. I didn't pick at those blemishes, but now I have scars of every blemish that was there before. They have a brownish-purle color. I've been using Mederma and it has faded the scars that aren't as dark. The other scars on my cheek/temple haven't faded at all. My derm. also told me to use baking soda on my scars because it will help fade.

My questions are:
1. Does a baking soda paste actually help or is it a waste of time?
2. Is Mederma effective?
3. Does Doxycycline work?
4. What about Proactiv?
