I am a double board certified US doctor.
My certifications require that we train and test in dermatology, and in my case, advanced, forefront methods as well.
This is not self help at this point....

Thank you for the confirmation .
The best approach for you would be the Q switch NDYag Laser that you can get done at the Dermatologists clinic.
This would need 6 treatments done at the gap of around 10 days in between the sessions. It works reasonably well for such post inflammatory hyperpigmented spots.
The use of Vitamin C serum on the area would be a safe option and no fear of side effects . This should be applied twice a day for 3 weeks.
You should use a good sunscreen in the mornings daily.
Avoid any chemical peels on the area as that would make the area more sensitive.
Do not use Hydroquinone based nor Steroid based creams on the area as those would have side effects.
The Q switch treatment is the best bet for you.
Do you have any Vitamin C serum with you presently?
The best case scenario would be to do both , Use Vitamin C serum in between the laser sessions.
The scabbing does not happen in the Q switch laser treatments.
I wouldn't recommend Hydroquinone as the area involved is the nose and hence can increase the sensitivity of the nose.
The Vitamin C serum from Neutrogena or Clinique would be much better options than the dark spot corrector that you have mentioned available otc.
Do you Agree with what I have mentioned?
Would you like me to release the rating service application on your page?
I am awaiting a response from you .
