Hello Anisatur, Thank you for the question.
Darker cheek skin may be acne scars, especially if you previously had a habit of squeezing zits. Acne can leave scars which can be in the form of changes in skin color becomes darker or changes in the surface of the skin becomes uneven. Acne scars can become more severe if the sufferer has a habit of squeezing zits because this habit can worsen inflammation in the zit. This inflammation can cause darker skin discoloration. However, in addition to acne scars, the cheek area that looks black can also be caused by other skin conditions such as eczema, contact dermatitis, fungal infections, lupus, and others.
Lupus is a chronic inflammatory condition in the body where the immune system attacks the body's own tissues / organs (autoimmune diseases) such as skin, joints, blood cells, brain, heart lungs, kidney, and spinal cord. The exact cause of lupus is not known with certainty. Some symptoms of lupus sufferers are easily tired, skin rashes (on the nose and cheeks and other body parts), joint pain, recurrent canker sores, fever, headache, dry eyes, chest pain, shortness of breath, swelling in the body, and fingers or fingers feet that turn white / turn blue when exposed to cold air.
To determine the cause, you should consult with a doctor first. If you do not get checked, it is not possible to know for sure the cause of your complaint. The doctor will ask further questions about your complaint, examine you, and perform other assessments such as blood tests, skin scrapings, and others. From this examination, the doctor can find out the cause and will provide further treatment for you.
