hi ,melacare forte cream can be used for skin hyperpigmentation but it should be used with should be applied strictly at night and it should be applied with moisteriser every time.sometimes there will be pimples over face while treating with it due to mometasone contect in melacare forte,and sometimes more darkness occurs due to ochronosis due to hydroquinone content.hence safest treatment for skin darkening is niltan ointment which is steriod free in the night and godsent tablets daily once for 3-6 months .if still no response go for chemical peels like glycolic acid or mandelic acid
