Thanks for writing in.
The condition appears to be post inflammatory hyperpigmentation due to previous allergy or fungal infection.
You need to-
Apply EumosoneM cream once a day at night time .Also you can apply a good quality moisturizer like Venusia lotion during day.
Using a glycolic acid containing or benzoyl peroxide containing soap for bathing will help to lighten the skin early.
The pigmentation will slowly regress over a period of 2 -3 months .You should continue the cream for 2 months.
Hope this helps.
I will be available for follow up .
