This problem is very common, either you can use consiler makeup for immidiate  solution and for cure try using "meladerm" cream for minimum of 3-4 months.

Respected Sir, This is to inform you that I suffered from Chicken pox 2 years ago, after it was recovered i had dark patches over my Forehead and cheeks and neck. It made me look as if i have attained a black skin over my face. I consulted many doctors but was in vain Atlast i COnsulted the Dermatologist in Jipmer SHe gave me Cream COnsisting of Kojic Acid and Vitamin C. I started using it for two months literally there was a very little improvement. But then i went on myself to hydroquinone cream(HYdroquinone + Tretinoin + Molasmate Fuorate) Wonder as if my skin turned very lightened in 3 weeks but with disadvantages with skin irritation, red pimples over face. So I stopped using it but my all brown patches reappeared noe with the same dull colour, What should I do now Which cream should I use again to regain my Original Colour Kindly Help......

Hello I am a young woman in my early twenties of mixed heritage and I like in the UK. When I was a child I suffered from severe eczema and a few years ago I had a horrific bout of extensive ringworm. I was based in the states for a while and as a result of this combination I have great skin discoloration about my body, also as a result of great sun damage I not only have great discoloration but my skin has darkened many shades and has completely changes. I had a consultation with a dermatologist a few years ago and was told that there was nothing that could really be done. I then received advise from a dermatologist in the states that the only way I could be treated was through monobenzone known as benoquin because my ethnicity makes it harder for my skin to respond to hydroquinone treatment but I am not interested in complete dipigmentation. Mequinol was then suggested but unfortunately I have been unable to find these treatments for my problems in the uk. I have tried creams and many things for my problems, is there any hope for me?
