Benoquin cream is a medication used for depigmentation, which means to lighten the skin color. It is primarily used to treat extensive cases of vitiligo, a skin condition that causes loss of pigmentation in patches on the skin. The cream works by increasing the elimination of melanin, the pigment that gives color to the skin, from skin cells, leading to a permanent lightening of the skin in the affected areas. It should be used as directed by a doctor, as improper use can lead to adverse effects on the skin.

It is important to use Benoquin cream exactly as prescribed by your doctor, and only for external use. Wash your hands thoroughly before and after applying the cream, and use it regularly for maximum benefit. Avoid using more than necessary to prevent increased side effects.
Although Benoquin cream has few potential side effects, including application site reactions such as burning, irritation, itching, and redness, not everyone will experience them. Serious allergic reactions are rare but it is important to inform your doctor if you are bothered by side effects or if they persist.
To check for allergic reactions, it is recommended to apply Benoquin cream to a small portion of unbroken skin or near the pigmented area for several days. Discontinue use if excessive inflammation, itching, or swelling occurs. Pregnant or breastfeeding women should consult their doctor before using this medicine.
If there is no improvement after two months of treatment, stop using the cream. It is also important to avoid contact with the eyes, but in case of accidental contact, rinse thoroughly with water. Always read the instructions that come with the medicine.
