Posted on Mon, 28 Aug 2017
Question: Hello,
Hello,
I used a peeling solution on my hands which was meant to reduce the visibility of the scars on my hands and brighten the appearance of my hands. after the fist peeling the person I bought the solution from told me to contentiously apply the solution without break not to stop until I feel that my hands have brightened to the stage I want. unfortunately it wasn't the case for me. on the first peeling my hands were bright and I was happy but i kept on apply the solution on the peeled skin and soon after I started feeling pains all over my hands like sore pain and i Stopped using it.. even since then my hands gets darker day by day and it feels hard. I contacted the person that sold it for me and was advised to continue using it or give it a break for 5 days and then continue... its been over 3 weeks since I stopped using the solution and my hands are still as dark as ever. and evey time i put my hands inside water the affected area becomes white and my skin sheds. I have lost my confidence because of this, I feel like im at the lowest point of my life. Please Dr is there anything i can do. I think my hands are damaged forever. Will skin transplant help? Thanks

Brief Answer:
Nothing will help. Stop trying.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I have gone carefully through your query and understand your concerns. I would insist you not to fall for these. Skin whitening is a myth and please refrain from even trying. Your skin will remain dark as ever and you would have to accept it. Skin transplant will not help.

Sorry for trying to put before you the harsh reality. Let me know if I could help further.

Regards
