Most of skin lightning creams contains hydroquinone and steroids which lead to hypopigmentation leading to white spots.Most of such white spots recover after stopping use of such products.,so you need not to be worry much.PLACENTREX gel is sufficient for it and continue with it.Plz remember kojic acid is also a depigmenting cream and your white patch will worsen with it .so just have some patience and go for only placentrex gel.
