Hello,

I suggest you to use a moderately potent topical steroid e.g either mometasone or triamcinolone acetonide cream. It would work much better than kojic acid in macular amyloidosis.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr Kakkar S., Dermatologist
