Dermatologist 's  Response
Hi...dear user .,
Thanks for choosing HCM..,
I gone through Ur history..,
LOMELA cream contains 2% Hydroquinone..,
Intially it will give good respond...for long time use..,
will create side effects...like..Dryness, rough , change of texture,
and colour of the skin...,
So stop the cream immediately..,
1) Morning times use SUNSCREEN LOTION..,
which contains SPF 30...eg..SHADOWZ 30(Dr.Reddy's lab),
NEUTROGENA 30(NCU).,
2) Night times use Moisturizer cream...CETAPHIL..(galderma)
will give good looking skin and use long time safely..,

Hi,
Thanks for writing in.
I would suggest that you stop using LOMELA cream. Since you have regained your original complexion, it would not serve any purpose now. I would suggest you use a sunblock with 50-60 SPF and PA+++ to protect your skin from the sun. Also, use an umbrella and wear adequate protective clothing. Nothing else is required as of now.
Hope this helps
Regards
