What Sort of Scarring is This and How Do I Get Rid of It? (photo)

i've had these scars on my legs for a while now, and they are definitely from picking mosquito bites and picking scabs continuously as i don't just pick them once but 5 or 6 times, i guess it just became a habit and now i am left with these dark marks on my legs, some of them are slightly red as they look kinda infected also some are a bit bumpy and itchy. I really need to know what this is and how to treat it and can it disappear completely? it has really knocked my confidence :(
