When used properly and recommended by a qualified and experienced dermatologist or other doctor, hydroquinone effects can be positive in that the symptoms of hyperpigmentation are reduced or mostly eliminated. Hydroquinone effects on hyperpigmentation cause the dark patches and discolorations to fade or become essentially bleached away so that new skin cells can thrive. If used improperly or in too high of a dosage, some experts believe that hydroquinone effects can be negative. Your dermatologist will have a better idea if hydroquinone effects will be effective for you after a through exam. You will likely start by using the product on a small area or patch of affected skin and monitor it for positive and negative reactions.
The majority of hydroquinone effects have been studied and shown to be acceptable and only negative or adverse in extreme cases. Hydroquinone effects continue to be studied as treatment creams are developed with enhanced ability to heal hyperpigmentation. If you or someone you know experiences hydroquinone effects of severe itching, burning or otherwise intensified irritation of the skin, contact your doctor and dermatologist immediately. The most serious but rare of hydroquinone effects is exogenous ochronosis. This disorder sometimes occurs in people with normally dark skin using large amounts of hydroquinone for several years without proper, additional use of sunscreen.
Hydroquinone effects, while usually positive and safe, sometimes result in allergic reactions for some users. Experts recommend not using hydrogen peroxide or benzoyl peroxide-based products if you are simultaneously treating your hyperpigmentation with hydroquinone. If you experience any significant hydroquinone effects that concern you, stop using the medication and alert your doctor. If you have an allergic reaction as a result of hydroquinone effects, you may have anaphylaxis, caused by some creams that contain sodium metabisulphite. If you can, measure your skin patches before, during, and after your treatment process so you can better judge hydroquinone effects.
Since some hydroquinone effects can be negative, it is very important you do not use this cream if you are nursing or pregnant. You would not want to pass on any negative hydroquinone effects or cause allergic reactions in your unborn baby or nursing child. Precautions to guard against negative hydroquinone effects are for your protection. While almost all hydroquinone effects are positive and useful when the cream is used and prescribed by a doctor, you need to be aware of any and all possible side effects.
