Hi Lea, thank you for the question.
This is a difficult question to answer over the net as one would like to examine the pigmentation before deciding on the best topical approach. Mya dvice would be to see a dermatologist but if you have to see your family doctor the one can either use depigmenting creams such as NeoStrata, Nimue, Environ, IS Clinical, etc.
If something more aggressive is required then hydroquinone may be prescribed using the Kligman’s Formula (Kligman's formula consists of 5% hydroquinone (HQ), 0.1% tretinoin, and 0.1% dexamethasone in hydrophilic ointment).
