Hi and welcome to questiondoctors.com
Do not waste your money on these ointments unless you know the cause of your problem..this is either due to hormonal fluctuations or thyroid dysfunction or taking hormonal therapy or birth pills…
Or a liver problem rarely
Or following skin injury from acne lesions, psoriasis, burns, friction and even certain professional skin care treatments
See an endocrinologist if you have already seen a dermatologist…

hi
such hyperpigmentations are usually permanent and any medicine will only help temporarily.
Maximum you can take vitamin E tablets.
thanks

IT IS NOT CURABLE. IT SEEMS TO BE GENETIC AND IT CAN BE JUST CONTROLLED,NOT CURED
