My skin is too dark and so by someone suggestion i started using Panderm plus cream...and the effect is very much positive and it has got hold of pigmentation level.....now I just want to know whether the usage of this cream for a long term is a good option?
Will it cause any long term problem. as of now I dont even have a single pimple on my face and i am using it 3 to 4 times a week.

Dermatologist 's  Response
Panderm plus cream contains ofloxacin, ornidazole(antibacterials), terbinafine(antifungal) and clobetasol( very potent steroid). It has very few indications and we dermatologist do not usually prescribe it at all. It is not an over the counter medicine. It requires doctor's prescription and supervision.
Long term use can cause steroid induced Rosacea, Acne, Thinning of skin, Redness and increased sensitivity to sunlight.
Stop the cream immediately. Use a sunscreen with spf 30 or more every 2-3 hrs during the day even if you are indoors. Avoid sun exposure as much as possible. Apply non steroidal lightening cream containing kojic acid at night.
Hope this helped
Take care.
