Skin getting darker after treatment for chest TB. Any help?

Hi Doc,

I was diagnosed with chest TB last year December fortunately it was cought very early . I am a very light skinned African lady at the age of 26 , after being put on treatment , I started noticing that my complexion was getting darker . I don't want to use lighting creams because I don't want to damage my skin. Will I regain my complexion once I've finished the TB treament ? Is there anything I can do right now ?

thank you for your query,

side effects of TB drugs include skin "yellowing".if that is the case you need to contact your doctor.
otherwise skin darkening can be due to stress and irregular sleep cycle associated with the long drug regimeN
In the meantime you can follow these tips
1.regularly clean,tone and moisturize your skin
2.drink plenty of water.
3. follow proper sleep and food timings
thanking you,
wishing you good health
