Hydroquinone cream is in no way going to help acne scars. This drug is used mainly for pigmentation and if used for prolonged time has its own side effects. Better to avoid in pregnancy if pigmentation is not causing much discomfort to you.
Was the friend who suggested you the cream a doctor? I believe she is not a doctor. Hydroquinone is avoided in pregnancy and in children under 12 years. Its safety is not guaranteed in this time period. Kindly stop. And do not use creams because someone advised you. These are medicated creams that only a doctor should prescribe. Because your friend benefited doesn't mean you will.
