Black spots or black spots on the skin, this condition is also called hyperpigmentation, where hyperpigmentation is a skin problem characterized by the appearance of dark patches on the surface of the skin that can occur anywhere in the body. The appearance of these dark patches due to the buildup of melanin.
This condition can be caused by various factors such as genetic or genetic factors, exposure to sunlight, effects of using birth control pills, pregnancy factors. The forms of hyperpigmentation on the skin can be:
Melasma: usually experienced by women aged 20-50 years and is usually more at risk for those with dark skin
Lentigo: Lentigo usually appears on areas of the skin that are exposed to the sun like faces, hands. Usually the size of lentigo that appears varies, starting from 0.2-2 cm and usually appears at an older age
Generally, black spots on the skin or hyperpigmentation is not dangerous, so special handling is usually not needed. If you have already seen a dermatologist and have not been given special therapy then it is possible that these spots are not dangerous.
