My legs have really bad scars. There's a lot of dark spots all in one spot and they won't go away. They get very irritated and somehow end up fresh and red again. They always itch and turn into scabs over my dry skin. How do I get rid of them?

Dark scars on the legs can be improved with a combination program that may include pulsed dye laser and application of Melarase creams. We often employ Melapads if patients require more immediate improvement.
Fractionated lasers or light salicylic acid peels work well to help improve this along with skin lightening creams. I suggest making an appointment with a cosmetic dermatologist. Best, Dr. Emer.
