Customer Question

I’ll send the pic of someone else results. I don’t think it Is a allergic reaction I just think it was false advertisement and it’s actually a bleaching cream. It would sting when I’d apply to my skin white isn’t broken and has a funny smell. Is there anything I can use to reverse skin bleaching please

Hi I’ve suffered with what I think is hyperpigmentation my whole life. It got really back at the beginning of last month due to the sun constantly being on my face. I saw something online which was supposed to be rid of my problem. I’ve used the product for a week and now I’ve gone from being dark skinned to pink. My skin is patchy and it looks like I’ve bleached. Two questions can this be reversed, will my skin ever go back to normal? Who can I see about this? I know it’s not a allergic reaction, it was a bleaching cream but was unaware at the time

yes you are right

it is hydroquinone which is a lightener

is there anything I can do or use to reverse this? Will I ever get my original colour back?
Expert:  the-good-doctor replied 1 year ago.

Unfortunately I don't think so. No

your next best option is to see a cosmetic dermatologist and stop using the cream

they can use special treatments to even out the skin

it can be made to look normal but it will probably involve lightening the rest of the skin
