Hi..
Welcome to HEALTHCARE MAGIC ..

I have gone through your query and can understand your concerns..

As per your query Melacare cream contains Hydroquinone, Tretinoin and Mometasone Furoate..
Mometasone Furoate is a Steroid and long term use of steroids can cause Steroid Dependence and as you stop using it there will be withdrawal symptoms like skin darkening, pimples, itching, rashes etc..
I would suggest you to stop using Melacare cream and can apply creams containing Kojic Acid, Azelaic acid, arbutin and Vitamin E..
You can also use Vitamin E gel or cream..
You should wash your face with depigmentation facewash containing Salicylic acid and glycolic acid..
Take Vitamin C supplements..
Scrub your face with a gentle scrub..
Limit sun exposure as it can cause further darkening due to Photosensitivity..

Hope this information helps..

Thanks and regards.
