Post Black skin on Forehead

I was wondering if any of you guys could help me? I have brown skin but on my forehead the skin is darker (black) but it is around the two temple areas, just on the two sides of my forehead, not everywhere. I do get acne but i don't know if this is caused by acne! is it bacteria?
Does anyone what it is, or their a cure?
any help will be useful to get rid of the black skin or to reduce the colour of it

I have brown skin and I had that problem before. It was caused by the topical lotion that my derm gave me for my acne, Its gone now because Ive stopped using the cream on my face. It takes time to fade, or you can speed it up by using a cream with AHA in it like Neutragena Healthy Skin Lotion with Spf 15.
It is NOT bacteria.

I also have brown skin. When I was younger the retin-a cream given to me was too strong and caused severe burn on both my cheeks. Could be your topical as suggested first. It may take time to get rid of that skin with treatment but a product with a low % of hydroquinone might help.

If you have spent a lot of time in the sun this summer it may be sun poisioning.
