Question: I am having darkening skin underneath my jaw line on both sides of my face. It is patchy. I also have red skin below my chin on my neck area. I have never had acne issues. Is there something over the counter that can help lessen the discoloration in both areas?

Detailed Answer:
Hello and Welcome

I appreciate your concern

Yes, there are a couple of options which are safe to use for darkening and discoloration of the skin.

1) L.ASCORBIC ACID vitamin C mixture such as LAA25 can be helpful with good result in a number of my patients.

2) Glutathione with vitamin C combination such as Eventone C in combination with sunblock can be applied all over the face and neck to have a much more clear and glowing skin.

Wishing you best of health

Hi. I m 17, took Plan B on Tuesday, the day after I had unprotected sex, and I am still paranoid that I am pregnant... I know that I made a mistake and that I cannot have a baby because I am still a baby in my mother s eyes. I am considering taking ascorbic acid because I read up on the subject and it seems to induce menstruation. Am I putting myself at risk if I up my Vitamin C intake as high as 6000mg after taking the pill?
