Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

My mother is having melasma on face. Can she use Kojivit gel? If yes, please suggest whether it can be used at night time or otherwise?

Answered by Dr. Sugandh Garg

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I have few questions for you to suggest the most appropriate treatment.

  • What is the age of your mother?
  • What is her skin type? (oily/dry/sensitive/ acne prone)
  • Does she have any other skin problems?
  • Since how long has she been having this?
  • What is her occupation? Because if she works outdoor she must take certain precautions.

Also, please get her hormonal tests done to ensure that it is not hormonal (FSH and LH). And please do follow the below suggestions:

Avoid sun exposure - Use a sunscreen (UVA and B) minimum 30 SPF. (Neutrogena is good but you may use any as per your skin or requirement. Even shalaks pharmaceutical has a good sun cream- UV AVO)

If she has to go out or even indoors, she must clean her face and then apply sunscreen.

  • If going out, cover the face with a cloth (dupatta/scarf).
  • Wear sunshades (goggles).
  • Kojivit gel is kojic acid, if used to be used only at night after proper cleaning of face and must avoid sun exposure the following day.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
