I used to have very nice and health skin until last year August when I moved to my boyfriend and decided to start eating health like him.after few weeks I started getting acne. From august until today my face is getting worse with dark spots all over my face. I have tried a lot of treatment nothing helped.some people advised me to do acidic peeling but I'm kinda scared. I live in Boston.

Severe acne flare

Please see a board certified Dermatologist.We have so many wonderful treatments.  Please don't give up.We have a variety of treatments from oral antibiotics, topicals and Accutane.Your program needs to be customized for your type of acne, skin color and budgetPersonally, i would not do chemical peels on your skin color. There is too much variety and could alter your pigment.Good luck to you!

Acne and hyperpigmentation dark skin type

I would see a dermatologist. You need to be placed on topical prescription medication including Retin A and hydroquinone. Home remedies won't work. Chemical peels might be needed as well.
