Thanks for being at Healthcaremagic
I have reviewed the attached photographs and can appreciate comedones, pimples and marks.
If I was her treating doctor I would recommend her to take tablet Azithromycin 500 mg once daily for 3 days in a week for 6-8 weeks.
Besides this apply benzoyl peroxide 2.5 percent gel on the pimples and comedones twice daily and kojic acid cream ( kojivit plus cream ) on the marks twice daily.
Also apply a broad spectrum sunscreen like faceguard sunscreen gel on the entire face during the day time.
Avoid oiling of scalp, intake of sugary foods, picking of pimples and avoid make up and cosmetics.
These measures will help in getting rid of acne and marks.

my wife used hydroquinone tretinoin and mometasone furoate cream for 1 month for melasma on her cheeks along with a sun screen lotion. It was prescribed by a dermatologist and there was very good results within 2 weeks. After 1 month's treatment as per doctors advice the above said hydroquinone cream as reduced to alternate days with addition of kojic acid dipalmitate (alternate days). But after 10 days, the dark spots have started to appear. Kindly let me know whats the reason for this reappearance. Please advise us a suitable remedy. Venkat
