If the 2nd doctor said that they'll never go away, why are you continuing her treatment? You could give the zinc a shot - who knows, it might work in time. Don't let the acne scars ruin your life! You deserve better! You deserve to live your life! Hold your head up high even with the acne scars. No one, with any brains, really pays attention to how strangers look. Those who do pay attention and make fun of the people or whatnot are just dumb and weak. They feel they have to put other people down to make themselves feel better and that's pitiful, IMHO. I get made fun of just because I'm Asian but I don't let it bother me too much anymore...screw those people. I have acne scars myself and still have acne breakouts and I'm 34 years old! I'd think I'd "grow out" of it by now, but no such luck. Still, I don't let it stop me even if I have a big zit. I don't even wear makeup to cover zits up because I was never interested in makeup.
Anyway, I guess you couldn't afford to but if it bothers you so much maybe you can speak to a psychotherapist. They can give you an objective view about yourself and help you see yourself the way you really are...beautiful. I see beauty in almost everyone, no matter what they look like on the outside. What really counts (even in a superficial society) is the inside...your personality and such. Outside beauty only lasts for a short time - you'll eventually lose it. If you work on the inside more, people will see that on the outside. You know how some people seem to glow on the outside even if they're not "beautiful" on the outside? That glow comes from within them.
