Hi dear pigmentation is common in pcod. Using a depigmenting agent is better option. The most important thing is to use sunscreen. Use the depigmenting agent in night and wash off after 1 hour. In morning apply sunscreen. Thank u

Hi Anupa,
The treatment of pigmentation depends upon the type of pigmentation you are having.
If it is mild, it can be treated with creams alone
If it is severe or deep, creams peeling sessions or LASERSmight be required
Nevertheless to start with
Use a Glycolic or salicylic acid based face wash
Apply sunscreen regularly even if indoors
Take oral antioxidant and vitamin c supplements
Apply Kojic acid, liquorice arbutin based cream in morning and Glycolic acid or triple combination cream like melacare in night. Do not use melacare for more than a month. If redness or irritation occurs stop using the cream.
Hope that solves your query. Take care.
