I Haven't Worn Shorts for 22yrs?

Help! I haven't worn shorts for 22yrs. I am a 33yrs old African American woman with "Hyper pigmented scars" all over my legs. I don't even wear open toe sandals because my toes are really dark from using different bleaching creams to clear the problem. However, the more products I use the worst my problem gets. The problem started with just a scratch on my leg many years ago and it turned into a small sore with clear fluid and it multiplied. Any advise?

I would advise application of the Melarase creams twice daily to improve the scars on your legs. Melapeels can also help further by exfoliating the skin with a peel. Raffy Karamanoukian, Los Angeles
