Does anyone know of safe treatments for melasma while nursing?

It looks just awful on my face, especially on my upper lip (looks like a mustache!)

Any help is really appreciated.

I don't know about treatments, but I do know that my darker spots faded with time post-partum.

I do have to be careful with sunscreen, b/c they will darken with sun exposure.

Then again, I got them when I took birth control pills for a relatively short period of time, and they never fully disappeared, and the same spots showed up while pregnant.

So I might just be used to them.

Mine didn't show up until 10 months post-pardom. The dermatologist told me they were related to nursing/hormonally. But we're not weaning for some time... I'd hate to have them for another year. sigh.

Thanks,
