Will My hyperpigmentation ever heal with my job???

Recommended Posts

So I never had acne my whole life. I am now 20 years old and got a staph infection and impetigo in my face which led to big scabs and bumps all over my face. These red marks started fading on most parts of my face but my cheeks are still really bright red 6 months later. My job I work in a butcher shop and do clean ups where I have to use chemicals and reallly really hot water to spray down all the equipment with a pressure hose. Droplets of hot water and LOTS of steam are hitting my face throughout this whole cleanup which lasts about 2 hours. This makes my red marks brighter and I am wondering if the hyperpigmentation will ever go ahead considering I have this job in this environment? Should I quit or is the steam not gonna really make a big difference. I've attached a picture of my face when first got my infection so you can see and also a newer one so you can see it's not healing very well. How  longer do you think it will take fade?
