What is   Benoquin cream ?
Benoquin cream is used for depigmentation of the skin as a treatment for widespread vitiligo, a skin condition in which white patches of skin appear on different parts of the body. This happens because the melanocytes cells that make pigment in the skin are destroyed. Benoquin cream is used as a skin lighter in people with vitiligo to reduce the color of patches of skin that contain pigment so that they match the areas of skin that have lost the color. The cream contains monobenzone an active ingredient, which destroy remaining melanocytes and as the amount of melanin decreases the areas of the normal skin gradually matches up with the affected skin of vitiligo.

The Benoquin cream is not meant to treat other skin conditions such as age spots, freckles, and sun spots, skin discoloration caused by hormone medicine, perfumes, pregnancy or skin trauma. Benoquin causes permanent discoloration of the skin and hence, it may not be the right treatment to treat other skin conditions.
