Thanks for posting your query.
I will be glad to be of assistance.
I hope you are not scratching the pimples or boils that you may be getting.
That can leave behind marks.
Now u need to apply glycolic acid cream 6% daily at night on the dark spots.
This will lighten the spots gradually.

Hope this is helpful.
