I am a 31 year old female with three kids. When I was in my teenage, I developed red bumps which later on turn into acne. Most of the time I scratch them as they are very itchy and same with insect bites. I have a lot of dark spots now all over my face, buttock, back of my thighs and upper arm. It is also present in my inner thighs. I have attached some pictures that you might want to look at and see which is the best dermatological treatment that suits me. I wanted to restore my skin and remove these dark spots and scars on my legs as well. This has been the source of my insecurities since I was in high school. And I always envy those girls who wear sleeveless shirts and short shorts. Let me know what treatment is the best to solve my skin problem. I am too shy to go to a derma clinic because I do not know what to say to them so I resorted to an online consultation. I am not on any regular medication except my breastfeeding supplement and some vitamins. I hope you treat my case with utmost confidentiality.

Please find my answer. Regarding the buttock scar, this started when I was a teenager around 13 years old, then gradually it became like that. It does not itch so much, but it left many scars and quite like red bumps are still present. The itching is not very much now. No aggravating or relieving factors as such. It started on my buttocks, and then it is now down to the back of my thighs and inner thighs. I breastfed my first child only for two months and my second child for around 7 months. My third kid is 4 months old whom I am breastfeeding now.

Thank you very much. I would very much appreciate if you please give specific instructions as below. How long should I do this? And do you have any skin care specific instructions so that my scars will go away aside from the cream? Are there any in-clinic derma solutions that I can resort to like peeling or something to speed up the clearing of my dark spots? Do you have specific diet changes to recommend me?
