hello and welcome to hcm forum shilpa,
i am glad you wrote in,
BRITE cream is prescribed in hyperpigmented skin conditions, you have not mentioned which medical condition are you suffering from, is it melasma,chloasma, acne marks or anything else.
i would like to inform you that hydroquinone is the active ingredient in this cream, it does not contain steroid, therefore do not worry it is safe for use over face.
you can continue to use this cream as prescribed by your doctor,
i hope i answered you query,
i wish you good health.
