Symptoms:  My health was good

A:   Hello. Welcome to ask the doctor.

Usually, darkening of the skin with acne looking eruptions occur on sudden withdrawal of topical steroids.
If you have been using steroids in any form on the skin, then discontinue it.
For acne, I usually advise my patients to apply topical cream containing benzoyl peroxide/ retinoic acid and clindamycin over the lesions.
If required, oral antibiotics like doxycycline/ minocycline/ azithromycin are started.
For darkening of the skin, sunscreen application is advised.
You may go for chemical peels done by an expert dermatologist.
Visit your Doctor so that he can examine you and give you a prescription accordingly.
You can share my opinion with him.

I hope it helps.
Take care.
