How to hide or remove bug bites scars and scab scar on legs? (photos)

I went to Tanzania this summer and got a lot of bug bites on my calves, and I scratched a few of them and some have scabs which I have also peeled off, because they were itchy. I am afraid they will scar, as the ones I haven't scratched have scarred, just as red spots on my leg. What can I do to help prevent scarring and get rid of my scars?

I suggest consulting with a board certified dermatologist. You may see improvement from lasers, microneedling, and skin lightening. Best, Dr. Emer
