I have read numerous forum entries of women who use lotrimin to help fade their Melasma. Is this a viable option? I can't find any literature that proves this to be true?
Is It True That Melasma Can Be Caused by a Fungal Infection?

Melasma from fungal infection
Any infection can cause melasma...this is due to post inflammatory hyperpigmentation (pih). The lotrimin would address the infection, not directly the PIH.
