What is the treatment for hormonal pigmentation?

I have hormonal pigmentation which I have been fighting for years, with some products like Kligmans formula prescribed by the dermatologist, it would go off and when I stop it would come back. I am using 50+ sunblock daily. I also tried Betnovate cream, pigmentation does come off but when I come in contact with heat e.g stove when cooking my skin gets darker. Please advise. Thanks Sophy(SOUTH AFRICA)

You can go for CHEMICAL PEELING or LASER if kligman formula is not working..
Regular use of broad spectrum sunscreen is very important..
