Hyperpigmentation occurs after acne when there is either picking at the acne, significant sun exposure, large acne or concomitant smoking  etc. Please use a sunscreen regularly at least three hours apart. Continue azeliac acid cream. It may take upto 8 weeks to respond.  If you feel there is no improvement then you may need chemical peels and or laser treatment to help you with the marks. Please contact a dermatologist who can examine you and prescribe the appropriate skin care products and treatments
