Melasma is a common skin problem that causes dark, discolored patches on your skin. It is more commonly seen in females than males. Melacare Cream helps to lighten these dark patches of the skin usually caused by pregnancy, birth control pills, hormone medicine, or injury to the skin. It effectively blocks that process in the skin that leads to discoloration. Melacare Cream also reduces any redness, rash, pain or itchiness that may be caused in this condition.
