PIGMENTATION: I use eldoquin or hydroquinon 4 percent or the brand name lustra (hydroquinone) - af applied twice a day. Good luck! if not succesful please see a dermatologist.The steroid cream we use for eczema if used for a long time will cause hypopigmentation.

Peel and bleach.: Agents containing retinoids, steroids, hydroquinone, kojic acid may be compounded and useful for this purpose but shouls be prescribed under the guidance of a physician. Avoidance of sun and inflammationis also beneficial to limit worsening.
