Alternative/Compound: There are other comparable medications such as triluma. However, melacare cream is a combination of hydroquinone 2%, tretinoin 0.025%, ( 20gm) Mometasone Furoate 0.1% so you could have this compounded and made by a local pharmacist.
Created for people with ongoing healthcare needs but benefits everyone.
