Dermatologist 's  Response
Acne is a disorder mainly affecting adolescent age group but may affect adults. Many factors are responsible for it. But you are having it after using few creams. Some face preparations are comedogenic to some individuals. Steroid is a very common culprit. Usually it is present in various fairness formulas. Melaglow is triple combination used to decrease hyperpigmentation, it contains mometasone a midpotent steroid. It causes bad acne called as 'steroid induced acne'. You should stop it immediately and consult a dermatologist.
Good luck
