Suggest treatment for discoloration behind the knees

I have been using triamcinolone acetonide for an allergic reaction I had a few months ago. My dark spots I had are clearing up due to the reaction, but in the creases of my elbows and behind my knees are now discolored and very light. What can I do about the discoloration in the creases of my elbows and etc???

Hi,

It seems that probably you may be having post inflammatory hypermelanosis. Consult the dermatologist for the perfect diagnosis and proper treatment. I would recommend you to apply kojic acid containing gel on the patches. Take glutathione containing capsules and high doses of viaminvC for long time.

Hope this helps.
