Hello,
Thank you for posting on HCM.
The dark spots or marks which you are referring to is called post inflammatory hyperpigmentation(PIH).
Nadoxin is basically an antibiotic which will take care of acne and prevent the new marks of PIH from appearing but for the already existing marks you need to have proper treatment.
I would advise you series of chemical peel like Glycolic acid peel by a certified dermatologist for atleast 3-4 months.
At home, you can apply a cream containing kojic acid, arbutin, tetrahydrocurcumin etc (MELAGLOW) for atleast 3 months to appreciate good results.
Use water-based sunscreen (SUNCOTE sunscreen gel) every time you step out in sun.
Hope this will take care of your issue.
Wish you best of health.
Thank you
