Hi and thanks for your query,
Bio oil is good and Medema certainly contains sulphur and steroids. This drug can have the effect of causing some bleaching of your skin or causing a change in skin color. This might affect some collagen fibres in the skin and have negative systemic effects if not used appropriately.
My suggestion is you taking an appointment with a dermatologist. He is better placed to clinically evaluate you, prescribe appropriate drugs that he can easily monitor.
Thanks and hope this helps,
Best regards,
Luchuo, MD.
