Resolved Question:

I have dark spots(5) on my forehead and one on my nose.i got this last May,2013.i visited a doctor nearby and he prescribed flutivate cream for the spots and Melagard 50+ sunscreen lotion and said this is due to UV.i applied for a month and i see no changes.Again i visited another dermatologist and he prescribed Shadowz silk full face,Tab Azoran 25mg(Morning 1 and night 1),Cap Q-plus(1 in the night),Atoderm PP + Avene sensitive to be applied only on the patches at 7 pm and wash later and asked to revisit after a month. What i really wanted to know is that whether Azoran 25 mg is a right medicine for this condition. i am very scared to consume that tablet after i googled about it.i am very confused.Please help me and let me know any side affects of this medicine as we are planning to have a baby in the near future.

Thanks for posting your query at I can understand your concern.

First of all I would like to see your condition. From your history, I wouldn't be able to come to a diagnosis of what your patches are due to.
I would like to request you to post a photo of the condition if possible.

Azoran contains an immunosuppressive medication called azathioprine. It's usually used in conditions which do not respond to conventional modalities of treatment. You will be able to conceive after you stop it. But it will be advisable to follow the recommended interval between stopping the medication and conceiving.

Please let me first come to a diagnosis as to your concern and then I could opine regarding the treatment for it.

Awaiting your reply, take care
