Question: Hi Dr.Kakkar,

Hoping to find you in the best of the health and happiness.I had written to you regarding the pigmentation I developed on my nose.You had mentioned about some cream to be applied.I visited a skin dermatologist in Pune(Dr. XXXXXXX Tawade) who said that the pigmentation was the post result of Chickungunia.I did mention to you that I had fever for a few days post which the pigmentation developed.The doctor said that this pigmentation is very common in cases of Chikungunia and always occurs on the tip of the noise.As of now I have been told to take Limcee (Vitamin C Chewable) twice a day and apply Eukroma cream at bed time.
I thought i should inform & keep you posted about this.

Thanks a lot doctor.

Regards,
XXXXX
