Hi.
As per your case history of hyperpigmentation, my treatment advice is -
1. Avoid sun exposure and use a good sunscreen lotion with spf more than 30.
2. It is better to avoid a chemical peel as your skin is sensitive. It may lead to post peel hyperpigmentation.
3. Use mild topical depigmenting cream like kojivit twice daily on affected skin.

Thanks.
