1. Post acne hyperpigmentation lasting for so long is not very common.
2. There are two kinds of options for post inflammatory hyperpigmentation. Either using creams at home which I will prescribe you below or going for cosmetic procedures like microdermabrasion, or chemical peelings.

2. Tablet Limcee 500 (Sodium Ascorbate and Vitamin C) once a day after breakfast for six weeks.
