what can i do about papules and macules

i looked up types of acne to come up with names for what i have, and it seems i have papules (tiny raised white bumps) and macules (dark red/brown areas due to hyperpigmentation). I get the occasional new pimple every few days, but my main problem is these papules and macules that are from previous acne.

so what is good to put on papules to get rid of them? i read online that macules will heal themselves over a couple of months, but what can i do to accelerate this process?

i have access to the following topical creams: Benzoyl Peroxide, sodium sulfacetamide, and Ziana. Has anyone else with the same acne problems had any luck with any topical creams besides these or how have you cleared up your papules/macules successfully?
