Since it has steroid content in it, I would not recommend using it. You can try using some home remedies for it like brown sugar + honey + lemon juice and scrub it at least 4-5 times a week. Also, we need to find the cause for it. You can try taking Homoeopathy treatment for the same. Consult me privately if need be.

Please take a dose of acid phos 1 m single dose and revert after 1 week. Lifestyle changes 1. Along with a healthy hair diet it is important that you exercise properly as it will ensure that there is proper blood flow to your scalp and will help in the growth of hair. 2. Treat your hair delicately. Avoid unnecessary brushing, combing or handling. Use a soft, round bristles brush. 3. Have a weekly scalp massage to provide stimulation to the hair follicles. 4. Have regular trims to eliminate split ends and allow the hair to look and feel healthier. 5. Get plenty of rest and sleep to allow your body to grow hair.

Usually because of sun exposure, but if darkness is patchy on the face also and not uniform, then we need to evaluate internal or hormonal causes. Treatment of the cause will help both internal and external treatment may be required.
