Patient

Q: Hi I'm Enrique and I'm 14. I live in Australia. I recently had bad chicken pox and now I'm left with about 6 hole deep scars on my face. How can I get rid of these?

Symptoms:  Chicken pox scar

A:   Thank you for writing to us

The scars are due to the physical injury to the skin. They should go away when new skin is formed from the bottom up. To get new skin to form, you should drink lots of water and have a lot of fruits. The fruits will give you the vitamins needed for this.

Also, use an exfoliative face wash will help you. Wishing the best for you.

Hope this helps you.
