Hello,

Dark spots on the face usually occur due to scratching of the pimple / acne with the nails. You are suggested to not touch your face multiple times and avoid scratching the skin. Avoid undue exposure in the sunlight, always wear sunscreen when you are outdoors. Exfoliate the skin once in ten days. Apply a skin brightening cream (night cream). They work by reducing melanin in the skin.

You can use lighteners to treat skin problems such as acne scars, or discoloration related to hormones. You can also use natural lighteners that are home made pastes of turmeric, milk, lemon juice and applied on the face twice a day. It is effective.

At night you can apply Betnovate C ointments on the dark spots and wash it off in the morning, do this for 10 days & all the spots will be gone. For quicker results you can get connected to a dermatologist, get skin treatment done with laser therapy or chemical peel.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Nupur K., General & Family Physician
