Pimple spots..itchy scalp oily face....

I have read several posts on curing acne here..I would appreciate if somebody would throw some light on my problems and suggest me some remedies.

I have a oily face. Last 2-3 year have been getting pimples..now they are less but lot of brown spots because of the old pimples.
I ususally see the eruption of pimples after a couple of days of intercourse...

My face has pigmented overall and my complexion has certainly become darker than before...Also have a very itchy scalp..lot of white powdery stuff on the scalp..tried several different type of shampoos...

I heard that Silicea can cure brown spots and reduce pigmentation on the skin...

Over the last year have tried several ointments, antibiotics but nothing has helped...

My last hope is finding a solution here...pls help..

Thanks in advance!

For the last 2 years since I got married it has been more. There are some marks from old pimples of 3-4 years ago also the new ones leave behind marks. All the marks are brown in color. Basically both cheeks are covered with brown marks left by pimples. My face is oily in nature.

Moreover, my face looks hyperpigmented. My complexion has darkened considerably in the last few years.
