I’m new here but have a question

Recommended Posts

I am 16 years old and started struggling with mild acne when I was 13. I thought it would remain mild but boy was I wrong. When I just turned 15 it turned very severe and began scarring. I thought if I just exercised more, ate healthier and waited to get older it would go away. I even went fully off sugar for a month but it just kept getting worse. At this point I knew something was wrong and went to the dermatologist. He prescribed me doxycycline (pill) and Differin (gel). I have been on this combo for 3 months now and have seen some improvement. The problem is nothing is addressing my scarring. I am having much less breakouts now but the scarring hasn’t changed. I mainly suffer from hyperpigmentation I believe it’s called. There are lots of dark purple-ish spots that are not going away. I was wondering if there is any specific treatment or home remedies to heal these dark spots?

These dark spots are mainly on my temples and on my jaw line.
