Hydroquinone, a skin-bleaching agent, is used to lighten the darkened skin such as freckles, chloasma (also known as melasma) even skin conditions like age spots, and acne scars. Eukroma cream the commercially available form of Hydroquinone decreases the production and increases the breakdown of the melanin pigment granules in the skin pigment cells (melanocytes). It does this by bringing about the inhibition of the tyrosine’s enzyme, responsible for making melanin.

Eukroma-Plus contains a combination of Hydroquinone (2%), Tretinoin (0.025%) and Hydrocortisone (1%). The medication is administered topically. It is applied on clean, dry skin to cover the affected area gently and completely. Application to the unaffected skin is avoided. The precautions to be kept in mind while using Eukroma are:

  • The drug is meant for external use only.
  • The cream should not be allowed to enter in the mouth or eyes. If it enters by mistake, it should be rinsed off with water as soon as possible.

  • Do not use hydroquinone topical on skin that is sunburned, wind burned, dehydrated, chapped, cracked or irritated, or on an open wound as it worsens these conditions.
