Brief Answer:
Kindly provide certain details and pictures

Detailed Answer:

I have seen the attached pictures.
I would like to know if you have any associated itching also over the affected areas . Is there any discharge or excessive wetting of the area?
From the clinical appearance, it looks like you have developed a candidal infection over the cubital fossa.
What other areas of body are involved?
You can click some close up pictures of other affected areas also along with pictures of face.
I am sure I will be able to help you more once you provide me the above details and the pictures .

Brief Answer:
Take treatment as advised

Detailed Answer:
Hi again

Skin darkening on prolonged usage is a known side effect of skinlite cream.
Make sure you do not use this medicine again.
Start application of kojivit cream over the affected areas twice a day.
In addition, apply a medicated sunscreen with spf of atleast 26 regularly over the face and exposed areas of neck everytime before going out in the sun .
Take oral vitamin c supplements in the form of tablet Celin 500 mg once a day.
Take a diet rich in fresh citrus fruits .
You need to follow this treatment regularly for good results.
