Hello I am a young woman in my early twenties of mixed heritage and I like in the UK. When I was a child I suffered from severe eczema and a few years ago I had a horrific bout of extensive ringworm. I was based in the states for a while and as a result of this combination I have great skin discoloration about my body, also as a result of great sun damage I not only have great discoloration but my skin has darkened many shades and has completely changes. I had a consultation with a dermatologist a few years ago and was told that there was nothing that could really be done. I then received advise from a dermatologist in the states that the only way I could be treated was through monobenzone known as benoquin because my ethnicity makes it harder for my skin to respond to hydroquinone treatment but I am not interested in complete dipigmentation. Mequinol was then suggested but unfortunately I have been unable to find these treatments for my problems in the uk. I have tried creams and many things for my problems, is there any hope for me?
