This is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.

you can use mederma scar tissue cream

https://www.mederma.com/mederma-advanced-scar-gel/

there are many different whiting creams over the counter

one is not proven to be any better than others.

Ok thanks and could you recommend me a bleaching cream
Expert:  Dr. David replied 18 days ago.

I would try taking glutathione supplements daily which can over time have the effect of lightening the skin color.
