How do I speed up the fading of leftover redness

Patient

Q: How do I speed up the fading of leftover redness from acne??

Doctor

A:   Welcome to Ask The Doctor.
We are here to help you.

Usually the redness due to acne resolves on its own in some time.
For faster resolution, the various options available are:
1) Application of mild topical steroid for very short duration over the affected area.
2) Chemical peels like glycolic acid peel
Share my opinion with your Doctor before acting upon it.

I hope it helps.
Stay Healthy.
