Scars and bumps on legs

What people say are bumps and scars do not always prove to be bumps and scars once I have had the chance to evaluate them in person. Before doing anything, you may want to consult a dermatologist first.

To answer your question though, topical creams containing retinoids (retin-a, retinol, retinaldehyde, adapalene), glycolic acid, salicylic acid and "bleaching" creams for the pigmentation including hydroquinone can help. There is an OTC product called Ambi containing 2% hydroquinone. Dr. Oppenheim's suggestion of an exfoliating moisturizer such as Amlactin is also a good idea.

Good luck.

Scars no real cheap treatment. Bumps Depends

 The scars would be difficult to treat unless they were prominent. Bumps might be treted with something like Am-Lacin which will lead to smoother skin. This is an alpha hydroxy acid and is inexpensive.

Honestly, there is nothing

The cheapest treatment is to do nothing.  Since there isn't any treatment that will give you smooth legs from ones with bumps and scars, it would be wise to save all your money and do nothing.  Sorry!
