Hi Lavette, I battled melisma for over 18 years. I have yellow complexion which made the condition seem even more pronounced. Like you, I tried everything I could think of but had no success. Go to my facebook page, MelaClear, and read about my story. I truly believe that anyone can have the same success that I did. Without spending hundreds of dollars to do it.I simply want the world to know that there is hope.
