hi Foluso,
Yes,there's treatment for hyper pigmentation.ointments containing glucocorticoids or hydroquinone could be useful.But it is good to consult a dermatologist to confirm the reason for hyper pigmentation,and take the opinion for using ointment for hyper pigmentation.
take care,wish you good health.
