Description

Melapik Plus Cream 20 gm is a skin-related medication primarily used to treat melasma (dark brown patch on skin). Melasma is also known as chloasma or mask of pregnancy, is a common skin condition that causes brown patches on the face. It is more common in women than in men. The discoloured (grey-brown) patches occur mostly on the forehead, chin, nose and cheeks.

Melapik Plus Cream 20 gm contains three medicines, namely: Fluocinolone acetonide (steroid), Hydroquinone (skin lightening or bleaching agent), and Tretinoin (a form of Vitamin A or retinoids). Fluocinolone acetonide is a steroid that blocks the production of certain chemical messengers (prostaglandins) that make the skin red, swollen, and itchy. Hydroquinone belongs to the class of skin lightening agents that works by decreasing the amount of melanin (a skin pigment) that is responsible for the darkening of the skin. Tretinoin belongs to the class of retinoids (man-made vitamin A) that works by increasing the renewal of skin cells, which helps in the natural exfoliation of skin’s outer layers.
