Monobenzone is used to treat the loss of skin color (vitiligo). It works by permanently removing color from normal skin located around skin with vitiligo.
Do not use this medication for other skin color conditions (e.g., freckling, age spots).
To get the best results apply a thin film of Monobenzone twice or thrice daily on the affected area. As the skin becomes very sensitive to sunlight with the use of the cream, it is important that you protect your skin from direct sunlight exposure.
You should cover the skin properly and use a good sunscreen lotion before going out in order to protect your skin from sunlight. If possible, avoid outdoor activities during the medication. You can see remarkable results within three to four months.
After Monobenzone cures your skin, you have to continue the application twice a week to maintain the skin color.
