Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

I have gone through your complaints and would recommend you to apply depigmentation creams, containing Kojic acid twice daily on the affected areas twice daily along with a broad spectrum sunscreen on the entire sun exposed areas during the day time.

Hope I have answered your query.
Let me know if I can assist you further.
