Melanorm Cream is used to reduce the colour of skin and remove any dark spots like age spots, freckles, and other skin discolouration associated with skin trauma, pregnancy, birth control pills, eczema or hormone replacement therapy. Melanorm Cream acts as a skin-bleaching agent and works by inhibiting an enzyme reaction in the applied skin cells.
Mild burning, redness, stinging and dryness may occur as side effects to using Melanorm Cream medicine. Serious side effects which may occur include skin cracking, blistering and blue-black darkening of the skin.
