I have really bad acne and I think the main reason is stress. I noticed a lot of pimples the first week I switched schools. I’m breaking out on my cheeks and jawline mainly but I get pimples on my forehead and neck occasionally. My question is, what is my acne type and how long will I have these dark marks. I wash my face 3 times a day, use benzoyl peroxide at night and use a sunscreen moisturizer after. I’ve become extremely self conscious. Please help

You have PIE or post inflammatory erythema and redness due to active acne. See a dermatologist for proper treatments, for redness, PDL or pulse dye laser 2-3 sessions, 2-3 weeks apart. IPL can help as can other lasers. Above all control your acne or more redness will develop as lesions resolve.
