Hi there Jones.

I read your problem with interest & note you have tried a sulfur wash for over a year.

Dermatology However, is a 'visual' field & as such, it is always best to upload a good clinical photograph on this site that you can do using the upload data icon to the right of your screen.

Do visit a dermatologist on the ground nearest to you for best results.

In the interim, you may want to try a 2% hydroquinone base cream in the evenigs applied specifically on those lines & a good sunscreen applied each morning with an SPF factor of 30-50. Bioderma has one such 'spot cream' that has an inbuilt pigment reducing molecule.

Wish you a clear countenance soon. Cheers!
