Hi. Greetings. Certainly it can cause ochronosis. Ochronosis has nothing to do with sun exposure. You'll develop it just with long term exposure to hydroquinone. Even as short as six months. So please stop it's use. Also see a qualified dermatologist near you and get your self checked for other alternatives to deal with pigmentation. Warm regards Dr Govind Suresh Mittal.
