Hi Johara, thank you for the question and I am sorry that you have experienced such unfortunate events with your skin.
This is a difficult question to answer over the net as one would like to examine the skin before deciding on a treatment protocol.
Firstly my advice would be to consider stopping the hydroquinone and to use a good SPF (50 or higher that contains zinc oxide and/or titanium dioxide – such as Heliocare Gel SPF 50). I would also recommend that you consult a dermatologist or an aesthetic medical practitioner with a special interest in pigmentation that can examine the skin and give you appropriate advice.
Generally speaking we have had great success in treating pigmentation and improving the overall health of the skin with NeoStrata’s Depigmenting Gel (at night) and the Brightening Cream SPF 15 (during the day).
