Hi.. The colour and complexion of the skin depends both on genetic and environmental factors.. The medications or local creams are known to modify the affects of the environmental factors but not the affects of the genes.. You can use any creams that you find it suitable, they affects that you see is due to the modification of the affects of the environmental factors alone..

The dark patches that you speak of may be due to infectious causes.. See a doctor for examination and appropriate treatment..

Welcome to HCM, Due to direct exposure to sun your complexion got dark due to tanning. Try some simple home remedies to get back the original skin & its glow by trying Aloe Vera sap; Potato juice; by rubbing lemon juice or tomato juice to get rid of tanned skin. see your family physician for dark patches in your under arm they can be allergic dermatitis. take care thanks.
