Hi,
Thanks for the query.

You can use a cream called Elovera which contains Alovera extract, Vitamin E acetate.
It will decrease the hyper pigmentation, but it may take some time to get visible results.
Sometimes dandruff and ache are related, though the exact cause for it is not yet defined.
Both these are caused by diet, stress, hereditary and hormonal changes.
Better to take treatment simultaneously.



Hope I have answered your query. I will be available to answer your follow up queries. If you are satisfied with all my answer, please rate the answer after closing the discussion.
Take care.

Hi,
It may take 1 to 2 months to get good results.
Other creams are Arbutin, Azelaic acid, veravit cream, aloe turmeric cream etc.
Studies in rodents showed that hydroquinone can cause cancer but not proved in humans.
According to manufactures dermiline cream is an effective skin bleaching cream with ingredients like arbutin, tyrostat, kojic acid, licorice extract etc.
To direct the question to dermatologist you have to choose the query for dermatologist under 'ask a specialist' option or have to choose the correct category in 'ask a doctor' option.
Wish you Good Health, If you are satisfied with my response please rate the answer after closing the discussion.
Take care.
