Frequently asked questions about Hydroquinone

Q. Is Pinquin Ointment safe to use on face?
Pinquin Ointment 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 Pinquin Ointment and consult your doctor. Excessive use of the medication may cause redness, peeling, or discomfort.
Q. Does Pinquin Ointment permanently lighten skin?

Q. What should I avoid when using Pinquin Ointment cream?
You should avoid exposure to sunlight, use sunscreen, and wear protective clothing after treatment with Pinquin Ointment 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 Pinquin Ointment.
Q. How should Pinquin Ointment be applied?
Pinquin Ointment should be applied once a day, before bedtime. The area to be treated should be thoroughly washed with water. Apply a thin layer of Pinquin Ointment to the affected skin areas. Include about half an inch of normal skin surrounding the affected area. Gently rub Pinquin Ointment 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 Pinquin Ointment?
Pinquin Ointment is applied generally at bedtime. You may use moisturizers and cosmetics during the day when you are not using Pinquin Ointment.

But this is usually tolerable and may disappear with time.
