Hi all

I am 35 years old and have suffered from Melasma for the last five years. It appeared on my upper lip and since I got it I have tried EVERYTHING to get rid of it and NOTHING has worked. Things I have tried include a number of vitamins that I was told may help but didn't, a number of creams including Thiospot which have not yet done much at all. I also tried laser treatment but it didn't do anything, in fact it made it worse for a month before going back to normal.

I hate having to pile on makeup everytime I want to leave the house. Has anyone had any success in getting rid of this? Or do they know anyone who has. I am sooo desperate and will try ANYTHING
