    Hi, Betamethasone is a topical corticosteroid cream that is used to treat itching, redness, and swelling caused by a variety of skin conditions such as allergies, eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis, and rash. To remove the dark spots we have a cream called Melalite and which is used to treat hyperpigmentory skin conditions like chloasma, freckles, lentigines, post inflammatory hyperpigmentation, residual hyperpigmentation, patchy hyperpigmentation. Not just for acne scar treatment, Melalite Cream also is a good cream for prevention of acne. Melalite Cream is good for acne scar, skin blemishes, dark pigmentation, pimple marks and all kind of facial problems. Hydroquinone is used to lighten the dark patches of skin (also called hyperpigmentation, melasma, "liver spots," "age spots," freckles) caused by pregnancy, birth control pills, hormone medicine, or injury to the skin. This medicine works by blocking the process in the skin that leads to discoloration. Melalite Cream usage First of all wash you face clean with a face wash and Luke warm water, now pat it dry. Now apply Melalite Cream on the affected area and rub it in a circular motion. Keeping rubbing Melalite Cream until the cream gets absorbed by the skin and use it continuously every might for 3-4 months before it starts showing results. In case of any kind of discomfort after applying Melalite Cream please stop using it and consult you dermatologist immediately. Some skin is hyper sensitive and skin irritation may occur.

    What is the difference the generic is a cream and the luxiq is a foam and does the generic come in a foam? Reply
    Replied by Pharmacist @ IDM
    Hi, Cream and Foam are different formulations but both gives same effect of the drug. Whereas foam is a substance that is formed by trapping many gaseous bubbles in a liquid or solid and foam is softer than cream. Luxiq is not available in Foam form with us and it's available only in cream form.
