Hello, I was recently diagnosed with Folliculitis when I we

Patient : Hello, I was recently diagnosed with Folliculitis when I went to my GP regarding my skin on my face. I thought I had acne. He prescribed me with Lymecycline and Duac gel. After a month of using the medication, I am happy that its working to reduce the number of "spots". However some just dry up, stay raised, are not decreasing in size, and are red. I am worried that these will permanently scar. Please could you advise as to how i can reduce these red scars and prevent them from scarring. This really is depressing me a lot and I need to sort this out sooner rather than later. Getting an appointment at my GP is very hard. Usually having to wait a month for an appointment. Many thanks Ted Holmes
