I have found zinc oxide (like in sunscreen or baby diaper rash cream) to really work well. Also, it will keep your skin sun-safe because if your marks are receive UVA and UVB light they can discolor more and become permanent. I have also tried calamine lotion, with some success. Good luck and don't worry too much about the KP (keratosis pilaris...aka ingrown hairs). When I was 14-16 I had horrible KP all over my lower arms; it looked as if I had a disease; however, when I got older it gradually disappeared.
