How do I get rid of hyperpigmentation?  Would Retin-A cream help? I'm using an OTC bleaching cream that contains 2% hydroquinone but it's not helping.

Address the cause to reduce the lymphatic congestion. If area is red/brown pigmented, laser can help. If it's from recent scar, you must wait for it to heal. Solaquin Forte 2% won't help, and can hypopigment surrounding skin.(Best 2 see skin Dr.) ...Read more

What makes and get rid of post inflammatory hyperpigmentation better?

Healing: The real question is what not to do that slows down healing. Avoid using alcohol, peroxide, hibiclens, betadine, and bleach solutions.
