I am a 21 year old african american male who has had problems with hyperpigmentation from in grown hairs, as a result I have used numerous products including ambi skin fade cream and a product called Nadinola with a 3 % hydroquine content.

I used the Nadinola on my face and under my eyes becuse I fellt it might hellp with the slight darker tint under my eyes. I used a very generous amount and left it under my eyes when I went to sleep, when I woke up I noticed my eyes had swollen underneath . after the swelling went down I had dark discoloration around my eyes so I put a bit of bump stopper under my eye becuase it looked like it wanted to peel, I used this becuase, this product stops my ingrown hair on my face and cause skin to it to peel so I used it to speed up the process .

This caused swelling under my eyes again but after the swelling went down dark discoloration showed up underneath both eyes. this was about two weeks ago and it still remains. I wanted to know if this is permanent becuase as a result I have had to wear dark sunglasses and am considering buying concealer to cover the darkness which is quite noticible and as a result has made me even more self conscious. Should I be worried, I have already bought ambi fading cream and started placing that over the dark marks out of fear it is permanent, what shoulld I do ?
