Itching and hyper-pigmentation on neck,lichen planus pigmentosus

I have developed itching followed by hyperpigmentation on my neck and face. The dermatologist has diagnosed it to be LPP, and has suggested Metalite XL and Depiwhite creams along with vitamin tablets. How safe is it to use these ointments? Will it have any sideeffects? Will long term use increase the risk of cancer?
