Doctor :   Do you cook your own food or have outside?
User :   and that too most of the days once a day
User :   and some light snacks
Doctor :   Ok
Doctor :   After going through the description I feel that the cause of your pimple would be the climate change producing excess secretion of sebum and clogging producing pimples.
Doctor :   And about your headache as you are working whole day on system, you need to get your eye power checked to know any changes.
Doctor :   And about indigestion most probably due to outside food producing gastritis.
User :   but doc, i have pimples since a long time even before i came to bangalore
Doctor :   It would be better to see a General physician first and then follow his advise according to the findings.
User :   and the pimples which are now gone have left marks all over my back
User :   which i hate
Doctor :   Yes, pimples are caused due to excess heat secretion and lack of water, unhygienic conditions or hormonal changes.
User :   i somehow want a clean back with no marks
Doctor :   But in males, the most common cause as in your case I feel is due to excess heat secretion.
Doctor :   Ok
User :   but they haven't reduced
User :   they are just growing day-by-day
Doctor :   These are scar marks which would reduce slowly without any treatment.
User :   sure
Doctor :   There are many anti scar creams available in the market but you need to see a dermatologist for the prescription.
Doctor :   Meanwhile you can follow these measures: User :   any particular fruit juice?
Doctor :   1. Drink lots of water and fruit juices, which will keep you cool and would also replenish your body fluids.
User :   ok
Doctor :   2. Consume lots of green leafy vegetables and fruits which would help you in reducing indigestion.
Doctor :   No particular fruit juice, you can have anything you like.
Doctor :   3. Apply calamine lotion on your back for pimples and scars.
User :   sure
Doctor :   Initially you will feel that the pimples would increase but this is the way this works. So have patience and continue it for atleast 4 to 5 months.
Doctor :   And about your headache please see a ophthalmologist to check the power of your eyes as this is a cause of headache.
Doctor :   Did you follow my suggestions?
User :   yes
User :   nothing as of now
