I understand your concern regarding your skin problem and I hope I am able to help you in the same.
Now from the description, it seems like you have been suffering from adult acne.
I would request you to please attach some close up pictures of your face so that I can assess the extent of skin problem and guide accordingly .
Also please provide details about the treatments you have already taken in the form of both oral and topical medicine.
Are you currently also taking or applying any medicines?

Brief Answer:
Case of acne prone skin

Detailed Answer:
Hi again

I have seen the attached picture.
You seem to have moderate acne lesions.
In patients like you, I usually recommend courses of oral anti acne medicines along with topical drugs.
As far as face wash is concerned, you can use neutrogena anti acne oil control face wash two to three times a day. You can apply multani mitti mixed with XXXXXXX water twice a week over your face to control oil production and acne.
You can apply a lightening agent like kojivit cream over the pigmented scars of the face.
As I have already told, you might need specific anti acne agents.
If you are not already applying anything , you can start using clindamycin cream over the pimples twice a day.
Avoid touching or picking of acne lesions. Avoid using hair oil. You should always apply a medicated sunscreen before going out in the sun.

Hope it helps

Please ask if you need any further clarifications
