Hello,

Clobetasol propionate is a topical steroid whereas kojic acid is not a steroid. It is a skin lightening cream. They are different from each other and cannot be compared.

Yes, you need to use sunscreen throughout the day while you are using kojic acid cream at night.

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

Take care

Regards,
Dr Kakkar S., Dermatologist
