Hi there,
I am an experienced Medical Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

You will need topical retinol cream and hydrocortisone and apply twice daily. Avoid sun exposure.

These are over the counter creams.

Prescription strength Triamcinolone and Tretinoin cream will be better.

Laser therapy is another good and faster option.
Best wishes,
Please reply back if you need any further clarification.
It was my pleasure to help you today.
