Have not had the very best of mornings.
I don't suffer heavily from acne, but it now seems that when I do get a spot or two, I'm almost inevitably going to be left with a discolouration/pigmentation in its place.
On my right upper cheek I have had a "scarred"/discoloured area covering a region of about 2cm x 2cm, for the past 4 and a half years! I kid you not. And it has not improved in size nor colour since. I have also just returned from the Doctor who was sort of "bleh" about it and said it should go in 6 months and to keep applying my "Duac" 6.67% Benzoyl Peroxide Once Daily Spot Gel.
However, I have been using this gel for the past 2 years and STILL it hasn't helped.. AT ALL..
Now, to make matters worse, the discolouration and pigmentation has now also appeared in the same place on my left upper cheek. Although not as prominent or as big in surface area, you can definitely make out there is a darker discolouration there, especially from a distance.
Although I have now achieved some degree of symmetry, this is ridiculous and rather scary!
Does anyone know the best way to sort this problem out? If its surgical, then what's the name of the procedure(s)? Lotions and potions?
