I would not advocate using melacare for such a prolonged period. It contains hydroquinone, steroid and tretinoin.

Steroid can irreversibly make your skin thin dry parchment like with visibility of red thread veins. Similarly prolonged use of hydroquinone can lead to rebound hyperpigmentation. I would advise that you gradually stop the cream and use a good sunscreen instead to keep your desired complexion intact.

Hope that answers your query. Take care.
