Brief Answer: Try Hydroquinone based cream Detailed Answer: Hello Thanks for the query. This pigmentation can be removed by skin lightening cream. I prescribe hydroquinone based cream to my patients in the night. There is good response with this. Hydroquinone is a skin peeling agent. If necessary you may need to use sun screen along with it. Let me know if you have any other doubts. Thank you
