Pigmentation on nose and forehead. Is melacare recommended?

Hello doctor, I have a patch of pigmentation on either side of my nose and it clearly shows up ( sinus area) and on the right side of my fore head too. Some one suggested me to use melacare which contains hydro quinine . I used it for 15 days and stopped it , it was really good for 3 months but dark pigmentation started to appear again . What should I do. Is melacare good? Please suggest. Thank you.

You are having facial melanosis. It may be melasma. There are many causes. You avoid sun exposure. You can use sunscreen . Locally you apply kozic acid and vitamin C containing cream daily at night. Orally you take Vitamin C 500 mg thrice a day, nicotinic acid 250 mg thrice a day, and take glutathion containing antioxidant capsule once a day. Cleanse the face with glycolic acid containg face wash.Avoid mental stress. Take healthy food and good sleep. I hope you may be improved.
