Have dark spots on skin. How to clear them?

How to clear skin of dark spots? From when I was 3 to the age of 6 I was constantly bit by mosquitoes and had a bad habit of scratching and peeling the scabs off leaving very dark spots. After that I stopped scratching and peeling off scabs, but if I got a scab, and the scab healed, there was still a dark spot. After 4 years I still have the same dark spots since and I don t know what to do. How do i and what should I use to make the spots disappear?? Please helppp
