Hydroquinone 2% damage is permanent? I have been using melalite cream for 1 year.

1 Doctor Answered
Melalite cream xl has a potent steroid mometasone. Seroids can make your complexion fair, but overuse causes permanent damage to skin. Never use any cream which has a steroid without a dermatologist prescription. Long term use of hydroquinone can cause exogenous ochronosis. You need to consult a skin specialist for Specialist care.
