Posted on Fri, 20 May 2016
Question: Hi Doctor,
Around 6 months back I got a white spot on my face. I consulted a dermatologist and she said it is p XXXXXXX and will be healed without any medication.But still it exists. One of my cousin is suggesting to use melacare cream. But I read that it bleaches the skin and once we stop using it we will become more dark. Is it true ?Can I use melacare or not suggest

Brief Answer:
Tacrolimus for P alba; Sunscren along with pigment reducing cream for XXXXXXX

Detailed Answer:
Hi.

Use a sunscreen, throughout the day, on all of face.
At night use Melacare-plus cream for XXXXXXX (Remember Melacare-plus cream is different from Melacare cream).
Use tacrolimus ointment only for white spots, once at night. P XXXXXXX may take 4-6 weeks to respond.
