What is the treatment for a black spot on the face below the eye?

Hi Few days back I got a boil on my face below my eye. Now it is healed but it left a black spot on my face. I tried many over the counter cream but it is not fading away. Can you suggest any cream which can help reduce it? It looks bad on my face. Your suggestion will be highly appreciated. Thanks Nitin

Hi,

This is post inflammatory hyperpigmentation, and usually resolves its own in few weeks-months. If not, we used to give creams like Hydroquinone and Tretinoin, but these are prescription drugs and to be used under supervision of a dermatologist only.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Muhammed Aslam T. K., Pediatrician
