Is bioidentical progesterone topical cream for arms just as good as taking a 50 mg bioidentical capsule at night before bed for menopause hot flashes?
Neither: The term "bioidentical" is a marketing tool, used to make people believe that these products are somehow better or safer than other forms of hormones.

I m using skinlite (hydroquinone) cream from last 5 year for skin lightening. can i use clostar cream.

Use a sun blocker every day, and use a peeling agent like glycolic acid or retin a, (tretinoin) and then use the hydroquinone only on the dark spots every night. The 4% is better, but requires a prescription. ...Read more
