Hello doctor,

I have acne, and my pharmacist said that it is dermatitis. I tried every homemade mask, but it does not work out. I have not tried any medication but have used some skincare products like face washes. And apart from that, I have a terrible uneven tone (tan) on my face, neck, and arms that I do not like. What should I do?
