Why do I have black coloured spot around my eyes?
Q: I am 34 years old. I have a light black coloured spot near my eyes from the past 2 years. I tried some medicated creams like aldopaq 4%, betnovate but the spot did not reduce. I have no feeling, no itching and no pain. I am worried. Kindly help.
A:Unless your problem of pigmented black colour patch is diagnosed, it is difficult to advise any particular treatment. Going by your description, I understand that you may be having melasma. For it we can use sunscreens, bleaching agents (hydroquinone, kojic acid, retinoids, corticosteroid, etc), chemical peels or lasers.
