I went on a camping trip in 6th grade. Even after applying bug repellant multiple times a day I still managed to bring fleas home. The fleas left many scars on my lower legs and feet. I am now currently in 9th grade and still suffering with these embarrassing scars. What are my options for treating these scars? I would like them to be gone or barely noticable by June, which is in about 5-6 months.

Treatment of dark insect bite scars on the legs and thighs
Bug bite scars can be improved on the legs and thighs. In my office, I recommend topical daily use of Melarase creams followed by once monthly MelaPeel treatments.

Yes best to use a bleaching agent and or light laser therapy as the previous term expert stated. Seek in person evaluations.

Hi Help. We would first suggest a compounded and liquid form of hydroquinone. Ours does not contain Retin A so is not irritating and is also compounded so it goes up to 8%. It is applied with thin cotton pads.
If this was not effective after 2-3 months of use, we would use q-switched laser treatments. The photos at the link below show similar issues and how we were able to do with them.
