Hyperpigmentation is a common condition that makes some areas of the skin darker than others. (“Hyper” means more, and “pigment” means color).
Hyperpigmentation can appear as brown, black, gray, red or pink spots or patches.
Hyperpigmentation can affect people of any race or ethnicity.
Skin gets its color from a substance called melanin, and when these skin cells are damaged, they can produce too much melanin.
Many things can cause hyperpigmentation:
Avoid exposure to the sun and use a sunscreen with Zinc/ Titanium dioxide listed as ingredients. Also avoid picking at the skin.
