What causes skin discolouration in few parts of the body?
Seems like lichen planus pigmentosus
Hello. Thank you for writing to us
I am dr. Kakkar(dermatologist). I have reviewed the image.
I would keep a possibility of lichen planus pigmentosus.
Can you upload a better image? How long since you have it?
sunscreen and depigmenting cream
Thank you. Yes it is lichen planus pigmentosus.
You must use a broad spectrum sunscreen e.g sebamed sunscreen lotion, all over face, throughout the day.
At night you may use Melalite-XL cream over dark patches, for a month.
These are prescription mefications and i suggest you to use them under supervision and follow up with a skin specialist.
