Hyperpigmentation - please help!!! Picture included

Recommended Posts

Hi

I've started acne org regimen about a year and 4 months ago, once a day. Having great results but I was left with some discolouration . Most of the spots have faded, but I have the big one which is still pretty noticble. I am pretty white and when I go over the spot with a bright flashlight , I can't really see it. Not sure if it's dermal or epidermal hyperpigmentation or maybe something else, but this spot really frustrats me. Maybe the benzoyl peroxide is doing something.
Please advise!

That is really unnoticeable to be honest. Although if you do want it to go completely, you can speed up the process with an AHA.

Try kojic acid gel (for oily skin) or cream, it gave me awesome results
if you want a home remedy then put some raw honey for about 40 mins and then wash it out, especially if you have sensitive skin like I do

Hi
thanks for the suggestions. the thing is that I'm not sure whether this is pih or pie. it has a deep red purple color, but when I apply pressure it dosent turn white for a few seconds. also, when the light comes from the side it gets really dark and it seems as if I have a huge pitted scar, although it is completely flush witht he skin. When I use frontal flash the mark is unnoticable.(picture attached).
currently using aha but I'm not sure if it's beneficial. I'm also making sure I don't apply any BP on the mark. 

please advise.
