Hi Swarnalatha, thanks for your question


Black patches on the skin often accompany various skin diseases, either due to infection, allergies, or irritation. This is because the ongoing inflammatory response causes a buildup of melanin. This substance plays a role in giving color to a person's skin pigment. This condition is often referred to as post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.


Scratching on itchy skin lesions will increase the inflammatory response in the area, which causes more melanin, as well as the dark patches it causes. Therefore, before dealing with black patches that appear after inflammation, the underlying skin disease must first be treated.


To find out the cause of itching on the skin, an immediate examination is needed by a doctor. The doctor will also ask some questions regarding the history of the disease that may underlie the skin lesions you are experiencing. Infections, allergies, or irritations have different treatments. Treatment will be tailored to the underlying cause.


After the underlying cause is treated, then treatment is considered for the accompanying hyperpigmentation. Actually, black spots will disappear by themselves as the skin regenerates. However, this process takes some time. To speed up this process, you can discuss it again with the dermatologist who previously treated you, either through drugs or special procedures, such as lasers and chemical peels.


Hope it's useful
