Too many abscess scars and more coming! How can I prevent abscess from coming and how can I treat the scars? (Photo)

Since I was 8 y/o I have been getting abssecess all over my butt, inner thighs and outer tight area. Today I am 21 years of age. I still have this problem. I have visited Dermatology and when I go there, they do nothing about it. I seriously dont know what to do anymore. I would really like if not erase the scars, to know how can I treat them so I can minimize them as much as I can. Or to know how can I prevent these infections from hapening.

Dark scars can be treated with a combination of Plato's Scar Serum and Melarase PM used twice daily. For larger areas, you may use Luminase and Exfolase combined.

This can be treated with laser and microneedling.  I suggest a formal consultation with a scarring expert.  Best, Dr. Emer.
