Hello. Thank you.

I am Dr. kakkar(Dermatologist and Venereologist). I have gone through your query and it have noted your concern.
Acne, specially if severe grade, may heal with post acne hyperpigmentation and scaring.
I request you to kindly upload a few images in "Reports Section" for better evaluation of the severity and type of post acne marks/ scars and the most appropriate remedy for the same.

Brief Answer:
Remedy for post acne hyperpigmentation and glow

Detailed Answer:
Thank you. I have viewed the images.
You still have active acne however the marks are not very obvious in these images. Anyways, acne may heal with dark spots therefore you may use 2% kojic acid cream(kojic cream), twice daily, for post acne hyperpigmentation, after your acne have subsided. As far the glow is concerned I suggest you to use a mild exfoliating face wash e.g a glycolic acid and salicylic acid based face wash (e.g AHAglow S face wash). Use it twice a day once your acne have resolved and after you have discontinued topical treatment.. Don't use this face wash along with your other antiacne topical treatment as it may cause dryness. Use it after your acne resolve - for mild exfoliation and glow - and after you have discontinued topical treatment. Since it is an exfoliating face wash it will also keep your acne under control.

Hi, I am 39 years old. I have always seem to have female repro issues stemming from teen years. Severe pelvic pain at ag 14 from cysts on ovaries, miscarriage and ectopic pregnancy. finally gave birth at age 28 and again at 32. Both by c-section because cervix wouldn't dilate. Had tubal ligation after 2nd child. Started having mammograms at 35 due to fibrocystic breast syndrome. Have 2 uterine fibroids, doctor wants to do hysterectomy, but I have opted for embolization. Before doing that, she tried to do uterine biopsy, but cervix was to tight for the tube. So I have to have D&C first. Now I have severe acne and dermatologist thinks it's my thyroid causing this and other issues (hair loss, dry skin, etc). Could ALL these be related to thyroid and hormones and should I be concerned about other serious issues, like cancer?
