Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Yes, you have pigmentation problem along with mild acne. I will suggest you to start with topical Clindamycin lotion over the pimple area morning and evening and a topical retinoid at night time by mixing it in cold cream. Wash your face with Dove soap. Retinoid at night will improve your skin problems.


Treatment plan:

Apply Acsolve lotion over the lesions BD, apply Arynoin gel plus cold cream at night in small quantity on the whole face.

Preventive measures:

Use skin aqua moisturizing serum 2 to 3 times a day, use Solaris sunblock SPF 60, avoid using Dettol and other irritants.
