Good day, I sent you a picture pertaining to my question, however, you still haven't answered my question, I just keep getting an email from you telling me that your still waiting on my response. I feel as though I paid $50.00 for nothing.
Expert:  Dr. Pravin replied 1 year ago.

Thank you very much for all the information provided.

I did receive the email and the photo however , I did not receive the notification .

Seeing the photo it looks like you've post inflammatory hyperpigmentation secondary to eczema.

You can treat it with the application of Aveeno Skin relief lotion on the area for 10 days.

This can be supplemented with the addition of Vitamin C serum on the area to reduce the intensity of the pigmentation.

This would help in lightening the dark spot.

Do let me know if you have any further queries.
