Hello,

I will be glad to assist you with your problem.

I can appreciate your condition, drug reactions can often lead to very bad pigmentation.

The first step of treatment is with depigmentation creams.

You have mentioned that you have already tried many creams. But OTC creams are not of much help.

If you have tried only OTC creams, then I would advise you to see a dermatologist and discuss about depigmentation creams - prescription depigmentation creams are much more effective.

If you have already tried this, then the next step to go for is Laser treatment.

Laser treatment would be the best solution for you. Pigments in the skin are found in special cells called melanocytes. Lasers emit a light which is specially absorbed by the dark melanocytes which are broken up and the pigment dispersed. The pigmentation is thus removed.

Laser treatment is also the best for scars. Laser helps to reduce the fibrous bands in deeper connective tissue and corrects the scars.

You need to see a dermatologist or a plastic surgeon for this. This will be the best solution for your problem.


Hope this shows you the way forward - wish you good health and a quick recovery.

I hope my answer has helped you gain more knowledge and confidence about your problem and in knowing what to discuss with your doctor.

Please remember to rate my service once you have all the information you need. If you have any other questions, please ask me – I’ll be happy to respond. Thank you!
Dr.P.Jyoti, MD.
