How long would it take to get rid off hyperpigmentation with the papaya soap?

Doctor's Assistant: Can you tell me about all the symptoms you've noticed (e.g. itching, rash, new birthmarks or moles)?

I been having some breakouts that I been touching a bit, and then I got some hyper pigmentation after the scar.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I been struggling I some period of time with acne on my forehead and nose and a little on the chin. and I been having acne the same spot.

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with this? Are you having any breathing problems?

Hmm.. I always had great pretty looking skin. and then when I was 15 I got a little acne and then I got hyper pigmentation after the scar. and I got more acne and then I scar. and know im going to a klinic where I get lazersurgery but it hasn't really been helping..

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
