Frequently asked questions about Melapex Products

Frequently asked questions about Hydroquinone

Q. Is Melapex safe to use on face?
Melapex should be used exactly as directed by your doctor. You should apply it away from the eyes, nose, corners of the mouth, or open wounds because these areas are more prone to irritation. If local irritation persists or becomes severe, discontinue Melapex and consult your doctor. Excessive use of the medication may cause redness, peeling, or discomfort.
Q. Does Melapex permanently lighten skin?
No, it does not lighten the skin permanently. If melasma occurs on discontinuing Melapex, talk to your doctor regarding the maintenance treatment of melasma.
Q. What should I avoid when using Melapex cream?
You should avoid exposure to sunlight, use sunscreen, and wear protective clothing after treatment with Melapex cream. Even a small amount of sunlight can worsen melasma. Females should avoid the use of birth control methods that contain hormones such as oral birth control pills as these methods can worsen your melasma. Talk to your doctor about other birth control options. Be careful as hot and cold weather may irritate the skin treated with Melapex.
Q. How should Melapex be applied?
Melapex should be applied once a day, before bedtime. The area to be treated should be thoroughly washed with water. Apply a thin layer of Melapex to the affected skin areas. Include about half an inch of normal skin surrounding the affected area. Gently rub Melapex evenly into your skin. Do not apply it near the corners of your mouth, nose, eyes, or open wounds.
Q. Can I apply moisturizer over Melapex?
Melapex is applied generally at bedtime. You may use moisturizers and cosmetics during the day when you are not using Melapex.
Q. Is Melapex bad for the skin?
Melapex may cause blue-black darkening of the skin. If this occurs, you should immediately stop Melapex and consult your doctor. In some cases, it may also cause mild to moderate irritation such as skin reddening, peeling, mild burning sensation, dryness, and itching at the site of application. But this is usually tolerable and may disappear with time.
