Hi XXXXXXX
Thanks for writing to us.
Melacare cream contains tretinoin, hydro quinone and steroid and is strictly contraindicated in pregnancy and lactation. So I would strictly advise you not to use it.

Right now, just use a good sunscreen and take oral vitamin C supplement.

Hope that answers your query. Take care.

i've just come off accutane and i've been having hard stools with some blood (though i think that's just from an anal tear due to the hard stool) they come out more like rabbit poop. I guess it's cos the roaccutane dries everything out. Is there anything I can do to get my stools back to normal?
