Treatment of acne and scars
Thanks for the pictures
You seem to be having active acne lesions along with dark post acne marks .
Since you have active lesions as well ,I will surely recommend you to take some oral anti acne agents as well like tablet azithromycin 500 mg once daily for four days . This course can be repeated every two weeks .
In addition ,you can start application of topical clindamycin adapalene cream over the active acne lesions as well as the dark marks of healed acne .
In addition ,use a medicated sunscreen with spf more than 26 regularly before going out in the sun .Apply it atleast thirty minutes before going out and re apply every three hourly .This will prevent any further darkening of the scars .
For the neck and folds pigmentation ,you can apply a skin lightening cream like kojic acid cream over the affected areas twice daily .Avoid rubbing the pigmented areas.You can continue to apply aloe Vera based creams .
Take oral vitamin c supplements once daily.
Eat lots of citrus fruits like oranges .
Take lots of fresh fruits and salads .
Please note that these are all prescription medications.
Hope it helps
