Doctor

A:   Hello. Welcome to ask the doctor.
I understand your concern.

As per details, the most likely possibility for your symptoms is some photosensitive condition.
In such cases, sun protection is must.
The depigmenting agents like kojic acid, glycolic acid, arbutin, vitamin C are advised for the dark patches depending on the condition.
Still It would have been better for me if you could attach the photographs .
You should visit your doctor in person so that he can visualize the scars and advise you accordingly.
You can share my opinion with him. I hope it helps.

Stay healthy.
