Re: Chloasma

Hi!! I had never heard of that. I looked it up for a definition and another word for it is melasma.

I do have it. There is just one spot on my darn cheek bone. I try to cover it with makeup. I am sure there is some skin bleaching creams. You probably have to get it by prescription.

You could also go to a dermatologist and get it removed by dermabration. I think that would be rather expensive don't you?

I doubt that any insurance would pay for that.

Do you have quite a few spots?

Re: Chloasma

Thanks for your reply .. I just have a few bits on my cheecks that look like freckles ( Spelling ?? )
it makes me look like i've a tan !! My specialist said not to worry just yet and also he thinks my contreceptive pill may have caused it and i've stopped that now as I think it was making me feel bad .. and was really worrying me !!!
