Two months ago I was treated for scabies with Permethrin and Ivermectin. I was also just finishing up my last doses of oral retinoid for acne at that same time. I do not have any symptoms of an active scabies infestation right now, but I still have red spots everywhere that I was bit around my belt-line and pelvis area. These spots are not itchy or scabbed, but still slightly raised and red / pink. They almost resemble the site of a pimple a day or so after having been popped.

Is this scaring from the retinoid? Do bites like this take this long to fade? Anything I can do to speed the healing process up or fade them?
