Avatar n tn Hyperpigmentation occurs when an excess of melanin, the brown pigment that produces normal skin color, forms deposits in the skin. Treatment involves hydroquinone, azelaic acid, corticosteroids, tretinoin cream and laser treatment. My sincere advice is to consult a dermatologist and get the first two possibilities ruled out. If none of them are present then please get your ACTH levels estimated to rule out Addison’s disease.

Avatar f tn Hello, The treatment for such dark spots and hyperpigmentation includes various skin creams like hydroquinone, azelaic acid, corticosteroids, tretinoin cream and laser treatment.As you have a sensitive skin,so any of these is not recommended.Apply calamine lotion and aloe gel. If it still persists then you can go in for laser treatment, Chemical peeling or microdermabrasion. Avoid picking, harsh scrubbing, and abrasive treatments unless prescribed by a dermatologist during this period.
Avatar n tn Hello, I cannot confirm anything without examination but it might be due to chloasma of pregnancy.It is a tan or dark facial skin discoloration. Although it can affect anyone, melasma is particularly common in women, especially pregnant women and those who are taking oral or patch contraceptives or hormone replacement therapy (HRT). The treatment includes various skin creams like hydroquinone, azelaic acid, corticosteroids, tretinoin cream and laser treatment.

Avatar n tn I was wondering how to treat skin discoloration. I have severe sking discoloration on my upper inner thighs. The skin is darker in areas. I use to heat up heating pad repeatedly and place it in my lap and I thought that may have been the cause. I have stopped heating it up but the skin discoloration is still there. I think it tends to get worse in the cold. I am not sure if my weight loss may be a factor.
Avatar n tn Hi, This could be due to excessive trauma , friction, bacterial infection, fungal infection or dermatitis. Also, the skin in the regions you mention is normally dark as compared to skin elsewhere. Do you have any other associated symptoms of itching, rash , etc. It would not be advisable to scrub the area too hard as this would irritate the skin. You should try to avoid sweat collection in the areas, keep the areas clean, maintain good personal hygiene, wear lose comfortable clothes.

Avatar f tn Hello, I am a 25 year old white female who has recently noticed a skin discoloration above my upper lip and moving down now around my lowe lip. I'm getting very self-conscious about it- it just came about probably a few weeks ago- it resembles a light 5 o'clock shadow - I know weird. There is no possibility of being pregnant and I use the Nuva Ring as birthcontrol.
Avatar f tn The treatments vary from melanin blocking agents combined with topical medications such as Retin A which causes the body to exfoliate the skin to rid the body of the hyperpigmentation while prohibiting new melanin production to laser treatments. The treatments wholly depend upon your needs and skin type. For standard non-hormone induced hyperpigmentations Hydroquinone usually reduces or removes hyperpigmentations very effectively. It is a bleaching agent.
Avatar f tn I am a 38 y/o female who was just diagnosed with 'Hashimotos Thyroiditis'. For the past 8 years I began having skin discoloration in my neck and face area. It all started with a small brown spot on the side of my neck. It then began to spread all over my neck, my check bone area and up to my jaw area and upper lip. I have gone to 5 dermatologist and they could not figure out what it was.
