Brief Answer: Pigmented marks legs Detailed Answer: Hi I understand your concern regarding your skin problem and I hope I am able to help you in the same . Your problem is that of post inflammatory pigmentation . You were recommended hydroquinone by your dermatologist. Lactic acid creams surely help so decreasing the pigmentation but they have to be applied regularly for a long period of time. They tend to slowly exfoliate the upper pigmented layers of skin and help in bringing the skin color back to normal. But you should try and not to combine both hydroquinone and lactic acid cream. You can use either of the two. Hope it helps Please ask if you need any further clarifications Dr Geetika Paul
