Acne with PIH dark skin
This should be taken care of by a dermatologist. Prescription products such as Retin A and hydroquinone is needed. Scarring can occur if not taken care of properly. Chemical peels, oral medications, and other topical medications may be useful.
Thank you for your question. It's difficult to evaluate your skin through a photograph, but it looks like you have a combination of acne: active lesions (red pimples) and comedones (whiteheads and blackheads). There are multiple different treatments for acne including oral antibiotics, topical creams, Accutane, chemical peels, facials, light therapy, etc. In my experience, I found a combination therapy of oral antibiotics and topical creams is effective in treating combination acne. I highly recommend you consult with a board certified dermatologist to evaluate your skin and to discuss treatment options that best suit your needs. Take care and good luck.
