Brief Answer: Details below Detailed Answer: Hello Thanks for the query and photographs. Mometasone is a steroid it is not going to help you. Skin lightening creams would have worked for you, but if there is no response go for chemicals peels. Glycolic acid peels will be good for you. These are done once a month. Also isotretinoin capsule can give you some relief. Meet a dermatologist and discuss regarding these. Let me know if you have any other doubts, Thank you

Sir it is Red in color so skinlightning products can not effect much on Redness.. i think redness has nothing to deal wid Melanien.. Can steroid like momate or flucort can reduce my red post acne marks?

Brief Answer: Details below Detailed Answer: Hello Thanks for the follow up. Yes steroid can reduce redness, but only for a small time. Once you stop applying steroid again there will be rebound redness. Peels not only help in reducing pigmentation but also reduce acne. That is why I am suggesting you to go for peels. Feel free to ask any other doubts. Thank you
