Dermatologist 's  Response
As per your case history of dark skin.
My treatment advice is –

1. Avoid sun-exposure and use a good sun-screen with spf more than 30.
2. Apply a kojic acid cream like kojivit twice daily on dark skin.
3. Take a vitamin b12 supplement once daily for 30days .
4. Other treatment options are oral isotretinoin, topical hydroquinone and chemical peeling done by a dermatologist.
