Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • Firstly were you diagnosed by a doctor for measles?
  • How many days has it been since the rashes subsided?
  • Generally, the marks lighten themselves within two months after the rashes subside.
  • So, treatment needs to be started after that. 
  • If you could send some photos I will be able to better judge the potency of the medication needed.
  • Treatment depends on the stage of healing.
