Thanks for posting your query.

I understand your concern. In this case, application of steroid creams like mometasone furoate cream once a day for few days say 10 days and application of hydroquinone 2% cream once at night for the same period can be helpful. Many of my patients with black XXXXXXX have reported good improvement with this treatment.

Consult a dermatologist nearby to prescribe similar brands available in your locality. The marks should soon fade away.

Hope this helped. Please let me know if I can address any other concerns.
