Hi,

It may be post inflammatory hypermelanosis. Have patience, as it may recover gradually. You may apply vitamin E cream on the spots and patches. Take cap vitamin E 400 and vitamin C 1000 mg daily for few months.

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

Regards,
Dr. Ilyas Patel, Dermatologist
