Hello
how old
are these scars/
Customer: replied 6 years ago.

I have over 75 bite marks that range from 60 days to a year old, the older ones are darker in color than the newer ones and all the bites take a long time to heal from me scratching and picking them in the process, Ive tried- Vit E oil /Hydrocortisone 1% and Neosporan nothing has helped.

OK
I understand
Get an alpha hydroxy acid cream from the pharmacy.
This is Over the counter.
Use it for 2 to 3 moths as it is exfoliative and will remove the outer layers.

If this does not get rid of them you will need to see a dermatologist to consider microdermabrasion or laser at that point.
good luck
