Hi johny,
Thanks for writing in.

You seem to have postinflammatory hyperpigmentation .
For pigmentation as a general rule-
Avoid sun exposure
Use a good sunscreen of SPF 30 and repeat application every 3 to 4 hours
Take antioxidant and vitamin c supplements .
Photoban 30 is a sunscreen and use it continously.

You need to consult a dermatologist as dermatology being a visual field, the cause for your pigmentation and the treatment required can only be suggested after proper skin examination.

Treatments like chemical peeling will be very helpful.Discuss these option with your dermatologist.

Take care.
