.-.Hi your clinical history gives the impression that u are having one knows the exact etiology but it usually happpens because if harminal changes during pregnancy, sometimes bcoz of OC pills, thyroid and decrease hb....the. .greatest enemy for this condition is UV top most priorty is UV protection whether u r indoors or outdoors....applyt sunscreen with spf 30 atleast 3 to 4 times a day as the effect of sunscreen hardly lasts more than 2 to 4 hours..this pigmentaion is quite resistant to treatment so prevention and protecion is best especially when it is can definitely be reduced with the help of medium depth chemical leadt six again the improvement has to be maintained as well as its not permenant and recurrence is possible...more of salads and sprout, plenty of water,and atleast a single citrus fruit a day...dont take stress...
