Doctor :   Hello. Welcome to ask the doctor. I understand your concern. I have seen the attached photograph also. Mometasone is a steroidal cream which should be avoided on face unless there is a strong indication for its use . It is not at all advisable to apply mometasone for pigmentation of acne. In such cases, I prefer to advise topical kojic acid, vitamin C , retinoids, azelaic acid in cream or gel formulation. Else you may go for chemical peels like Glycolic acid peel or Salicylic acid peel. Have a good and strict sun protection. Visit your doctor and share my opinion with him. I hope it helps. Stay healthy
