What is the redness after using hydroquinone cream?
Hydroquinone creams, whether used in 2%, 4% (prescription) strength or higher (available in Asia, Africa and South America) are irritating for many people. That irritation by itself often will make the pigment problem worse. If you are getting irritated from these, it’s best to stop using them and consult your doctor so you don’t make the pigment worse.
