welcome to healthcare magic forum
melacare is steroid containing cream and must not be used more than 4 wks
you are using for 5 yrs it is too much .
you are addicted to melacare ,you required gradual tapering
use non steroidal cream ,initially you feel less result ,but will prevent skin damage
apply good moisturizer and sun screen lotion daily
there is no direct relation between food allergy and pigmentation
better to consult dermatologist
i hope i answered your question
