Hello, dark spots and patches on the skin can be due to many reasons. They can range from normal sun spots after sun exposure to skin diseases like lichen planus. If the correct cream is not given, you might never get relief. Please do not use any over the counter creams that are available. Consult a dermatologist so that your skin can be analyzed and correct treatment can be started.
