Hi Dear,

Welcome to HCM.

Understanding your concern. As per your query you have acne and black scars on back which is due to increased sensitivity of your skin which is leading to hyper pigmentation. Excess of sebaceous glands on your back is the cause for your condition. I would suggest you to take diet rich in vitamin C and antioxidants like Citrus fruits, green leafy vegetables and lots of salads and drink plenty of water. Apply lightening agent like kojic acid and vitamin c combination over the black scars. Use proper sunscreen (spf>30) before going out in the sun so that the scars doesn't get worsen. Donot touch them repeatedly. If your symptoms still keeps on persisting, i would suggest you to visit dermatologist as there are various other measures for the treatment of dark scars like the use of chemical peels, dermabrasion and microabrasion.

Hope your concern has been resolved.

Get Well Soon.
Best Wishes,
Dr. Harry Maheshwari
