Dark spots on my face

How do I get rid of dark spot caused by pimpels on my face? I have pimples on my face, I have had them for over 3 years now. They often come and disappear but they leave dark spots on my face.

Acne (pimples) can cause skin inflammation, which results in increased pigmentation over time. A Retinoid cream may help. Discuss this with your doctor. Don't use "skin lightening" creams as they can cause further blotchy darkening of the skin.
