Brief Answer:
You would have to accept the situation

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I have gone carefully through your query and understand your concerns. Let me tell you that skin lightening is a myth that numerous people fall for. In your case you would need to accept the natural distribution of skin pigments (as caused due to distribution and concentration of melanocytes). It is no use fighting it. The more you try to change the situation, the more futile your efforts are likely to be. I would therefore discourage you from even trying.

Let me know if I could help further.

Does using medicines can further deteriote the condition.I request u to please suggest something that I can do as I am a girl and my family is really concerned

Brief Answer:
There are more things that you should be concerned about.

Detailed Answer:
Medicines are unlikely to deteriorate the condition. I understand the social pressures upon you, you being a girl. But you need to understand that skin colour is not the only thing that is going to pull you down. There would always be something that the society will use in order to establish you as inferior. Rather, you need to accept who you are and need to be brave and deal with the society. You need to stop bothering about what the society feels about you and rather bother about you really are and who you really want to be.

I would insist you to go through:

Remember that there would always be stuff that are not upto the mark and there would always be other things that are simply brilliant. You need to focus on the latter. Don't get bugged down by the former.

Let me know if you still do not feel positive.
