Would like to talk to others who are going through this. Please, reply. 

I used HQ for an extended period and developed these dark spots on my face. When I first noticed the darkening I called the doctor but he encouraged me to keep using the cream. I used it for at least another month before deciding to stooz the damage was done. Now I am dealing with dark patches on my cheeks. I thought it was melasma but once I started reading up on the color, presentation, I realized it was ochronosis.

I am hoping to talk to others who are going through this and those who are seeking out treatment. Would love to share ideas. 

I am currently waiting to have a biopsy to confirm if it is in fact ochronosis. I am hoping this can be treated with the new laser Pico, I have heard great things about it for breaking up pigment while not burning the skin, so less side effects.

if you are going through something similar, I would love to hear from you.
