Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I have read your query.

  • Black patches over the face may be most commonly postinflammatory pigmentation which occurs usually after acne (pimples) or any trauma.
  • It can also occur due to sun damage which is termed as melasma.

The Probable causes:

1. Postinflammatory.
2. UV rays (sun damage).

Treatment plan:

1. Start applying anti-pigmentary medications like kojic acid (kojivit) or hydroquinine 2%(HH lite) in the night only to the black patches for two weeks along with a sunscreen of SPF 26 and above in the morning to your full face three to four times like at 8 AM, 11 AM and 2 PM
2. Sunscreen can be continued for a long duration.

Regarding follow up:
