Pigmentation: See an aesthetic practitioner or dermatologist. There are so many options for you but you will need to consult for a full history and skin analysis and treatment plan. Hope this helps

See an expert: an experienced dermatologist is whom you need to see for evaluation, avoid self medications or any non specialist advice. Dryness of the skin or dermatitis (inflammation) are common side effects of the drug, and hyperpigmentation (dark color) due to inflammation can stay for some time, avoid prolonged sun exposure, moisturize your skin and see the dermatologist, good luck
