Hydroquinone: 4% Hydroquinone is the one we usually prescribed. Tri-Luma cream is the most popular. The efficacy depends individually. Metasone ointment is a relatively high potent cortisone ointment, not safe for areas above neck, skin folds, genitalia.
Created for people with ongoing healthcare needs but benefits everyone.
