Expect improvement after 3 months, then continue for at least a year. Frustrating, but it tak. ...Read more

Manage, not cure: Topical benzoyl peroxide and/or tretinoin are often enough to control your acne until it remits on its own. There's no telling when this will happen.

I'd suggest you leave the pigmented areas alone; bleaches can disfigure you. ...Read more
