A:   Thank you for your question. The area of your face seems quite inflamed in response to using Hydroquinone. You will likely need to have this area examined by your doctor to determine if you require any medication to reduce this inflammation. We do not want to risk advising you that it will resolve on its own, because the face is a very sensitive are and can be very prone to scarring. For this reason, we recommend that you report to your doctor and have it examined. We hope this resolves with out complication.
