Vitamin C is one of the most important nutrients which play an absolutely pivotal role in protecting your body from a number of diseases and disorders, such as flu and colds. Additionally, it helps in boosting the body's calcium synthesis abilities, in rebuilding of damaged blood vessels and bones as well as tissue repair and boosting of overall immunity of the body. It is an essential part of the diet and should not be overlooked in any case.

Hi lybrate-user, Azelaic acid is used for treatment for acne. But as your acne has flared up, you may be allergic to the product or may not be using it in right manner. Acne requires a proper medical treatment and post acne care for dark spots/scars which are commonly associated with acne. Apart from medical treatment which includes medications for local application and oral medications if required, for long term benefits advanced treatments available. These are, Chemical peels, RF therapy, Enriched oxygen therapy and Microneedling therapy. These are highly recommended. These not only cure acne but also lead to significant improvement in appearance of dark spots and scars. Treatment is done based on the severity of the condition. I would be happy to help you. Please consult me privately so that I can understand your problem in detail and help you.

Pimples may erupt at various ages, although it is most commonly seen during puberty for both young boys and girls. This is a reddish eruption which may or may not produce any kind of discharge. The pimples when formed in a cluster with black heads and white heads are commonly called acne. This kind of an eruption can be quite painful if it becomes too severe. Various kinds of factors like dirt and hormonal changes can also produce pimples and acne. It is imperative to keep the skin clean with cleansing every morning and evening so that all the micro particles and grime as well as dead tissue may be routinely cleaned away from the skin, failing which they can also manifest as pimples due to clogged pores. Also, one can use medicated skin creams prescribed by the dermatologist so that the pimples can be soothed away. Further, one will have to drink plenty of water and get lots of nutrition rich food so that the skin is in good health.
