I have this mark on the side of my nose, left over from when I had a very stubborn pimple. I have had this since July and it is still not gone. I apply hydroquinone to it, but it hasn't done much. Can anyone suggest anything?

Q: How can I get rid of my red marks / hyperpigmentation / brown marks / dark marks?

A: There are several different approaches to help this process. You may have to experiment to find which works best for you. The effectiveness of these treatments varies and they may have to be used in conjunction with other treatments for best results:

Prescription approach:
