White heads on forehead, acne, pigmentation. Using demelan cream. Will chemical peels help?

Thank you very much sir.I use demelan every day on entire face but it causes itching. I also got tiny whiteheads on my forehead(may not be related to demelan). I would like to have fair facial skin(matches to my body color) at the same time i would like to get rid of acne. Oily sunscreen may not suit my acne pron screen. I searched on internet about chemical peel . I found articles on peels like glycolic acid , TCA , Retinoic acid etc. Are they available for home use? May I upload my facial pictures for exact idea?

Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic

Facial pigmentation is often caused due to exposure to sun and pollution. White heads are caused due to dust and sweat accumulation over the skin which clogs the pores.

I would advise you to the following remedial measures:
-Wash your face with a mild facial scrub 2 to 3 times a day
- Avoid exposing yourself to dust and pollution
- Use an oil-control sunscreen, when going out in the sun
- Eat a healthy and nutritious diet: avoid oily foods and take more of fruits and green vegetables

Chemical peels can help in reducing pigmentation problems, but it is always better and safe to get it done by a professional.

Best wishes,
Dr. Sheeba Stephen
