Brief Answer: Details below Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for the query. This hyper pigmentation can be removed by using skin lightening creams. Various creams are available like melalite xl, lookbrite, Lumaglow etc. You can take any of them. Avoid stepping out in the sun when you have applied this cream. The following should be procedure to use it. 1. Wash your face in evening around 7. 2. Dry face and apply cream all over your face. 3. Keep it for one hour. 4. Wash face again. 5. Apply some moisturizing cream and sleep. 6. In morning apply a sunscreen with spf at least 30. Do this for a month, you will get good results. Let me know if you have any other doubts. Thank you

Brief Answer: Details below Detailed Answer: Hello Change is skin color usually happens due to exposure to ultra violet rays. Its not necessary to go out in sun. Even the light inside house contains ultra violet rays. Please dont go for LASERS there can be rebound hyperpigmentation. The cream which I have suggested act against melanin and help in reducing skin color. Also get a thyroid profile done. Hypothyroidism may be related to generalized discoloration of skin. Regarding eyes getting smaller, I dont think it can happen but if you have doubt please meet an eye specialist and get it checked. Let me know if you have any other doubts. Thank you
