Brief Answer: No such medicines. Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for trusting us with your health concern. The skin color of the baby is genetically determined and there are multiple genes that control this. It is difficult to predict the complexion of your baby and there are no medicines or food supplements that have been approved by FDA that have any role in improving the skin color of the baby. What can temporarily change or influence your baby's skin colour are health and environmental issues. Once these issues are resolved, your baby's skin colour will return to the shade and tone he/she was born with. You can have a healthy baby with the help of regular antenatal vitamins; a diet rich in proteins and calcium and a regular daily exercise like walking. Please feel free to discuss further. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have. Wishing you good health. Regards. Dr. Rakhi Tayal.
