Hello doctor,

I got dark pigmentation below my eyes which extends till the side face also, I got the marks after using the cream suggested by a skin doctor. The dark patches are in both sides of my eyes. I tried Vitamin C VC+15 Serum, it also did not work for me. Currently, I consulted another doctor, he prescribed me Clotrimazole and Beclomethasone cream.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Clotrimazole and Beclomethasone combination is not meant for pigmentation and therefore should not be used for this condition. It is an antifungal preparation. I would suggest you to use a Kojic acid based cream like Kojic cream, twice daily. The cream you are using is too irritant to be used on periorbital skin.

I would suggest you to try a few sessions of Glycolic acid chemical peeling along with topical treatment. Also, use a broad spectrum sunscreen like Neutrogena dry touch ultrasheer sunscreen, throughout the day.
