I have chickenpox one week before. I got some scars on my face. Is there any treatment or medicine to remove scars?

Treatment of chickenpox scars

The best treatment at this point is to keep the chickenpox lesions moist until they heal. You can use something as simple as Vaseline or Aquaphor for this. For the next few months you will want to wear sunscreen over the affected areas to prevent them from darkening due to sun exposure. If scarring persists you should consult with a plastic surgeon or dermatologist to determine the best options.
