Q. I have fair complexion, but I have dark patches (Jhai) on my face. I had some liver problem 2 years ago and had to take a few medicines for that. The patches formed during that period only. Please suggest some cream for this.

A.  If your problem is that of melasma (in Hindi called as Jhai or Chai), it may be related to pregnancy, iron deficiency, hormonal therapy, etc. Once these are ruled out, main treatment is photo protection, and pigment lightening creams. You may apply Niltan cream in the morning and Melalite cream at night daily for at least 3-6 month to see the change. Ideally, you should see a dermatologist for correct diagnosis and treatment.
