Benoquin Cream 20% (monobenzone topical)Drug Uses
Benoquin Cream is used to permanently depigment (lighten) skin in people with a condition called vitiligo. Depigmenting (lightening) darker skin around areas of skin affected by vitiligo helps even out the coloring and appearance of the skin.
Benoquin Cream is not for treating freckles, cafe-au-lait spots, sun damage, melanoma, jaundice, or other pigmentation disorders not caused by vitiligo.
Benoquin Cream may also be used for other purposes not listed in this medication guide.
Use this medication exactly as prescribed by your doctor. Do not use it in larger amounts or for longer than recommended. Follow the directions on your prescription label.
It may take up to 4 months of treatment with monobenzone to complete the depigmentation of treated skin. Tell your doctor if your condition does not begin to improve after a month of using this medication.
Skin treated with monobenzone may be especially sensitive to sunlight or irritation for the rest of your life.
Using monobenzone may also cause changes in the color of your untreated skin. Talk with your doctor if you have concerns about possible depigmentation of other skin areas not affected by vitiligo.
