Blackheads?: If by "skin turning black" you mean blackheads / comedones, and you have acne, then i'd consider starting with a retinoic acid derivative plus a topical antibiotic such as clindamycin. Good luck.

I think that Dr. Somani's impression of post-inflammatory pigmentation is more likely. Forgive me if I misunderstood; only you can tell which this is.

See dermatologist: What you describe is post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (pih), a frequently encountered problem particularly in darker pigmented individuals including african americans or asians. Pih occurs as a result of inflammation to skin. Acne is common inflammatory diseases that results in pih, particularly if one picks at their lesions. See a dermatologist to get appropriate treatment.

I have headache in my head what I have to do?

Dr. Keegan Duchicela

Cause of headache: The best way to tackle a headache is to figure out what's causing it in the first place - is it a migraine, from not eating breakfast this am, from skipping a dose of a medicine, from not getting enough sleep? There can be many reasons. For the run of the mill dull headache, i usually like to try some Ibuprofen and/or tylenol (acetaminophen) first and see how it feels after an hour or so.
