Hyperpigmentation Of Body Parts.?
, I want to ask. I am a white person (not this racist). I take a bath too every day. but suddenly I got black / brown skin. I thought it was climbing, but when I rubbed it using soap it still didn’t disappear like it was permanent. so what to do? every week it always appears, I’m afraid. if I have a dangerous disease … please solve it😢😢
Hello Annisa, thank you for asking.
Skin color is determined by the amount of melanin produced by melanocyte cells. In general, a person's skin color is determined by genes. Light-skinned people have less melanin than dark-skinned people. However, along the journey of life, of course, skin color can be slightly changed. Generally, changes in skin color depend on exposure to UV rays, the type of skin care, changes in hormone levels, and certain disease conditions. You did not mention where the skin discoloration occurred. Does it occur in areas where there are many folds? If so, that is normal. The condition of increasing melanin which causes the skin to darken, is called hyperpigmentation.
Some possible conditions that you experience include:
Hyperpigmentation in the skin fold area. Hyperpigmentation due to dermatitis. Hyperpigmentation due to exposure or constant friction or pressure. For example, due to a lot of sitting on his knees, then some of the instep of the legs and knees can experience blackish discoloration. Post-wound hyperpigmentation. Hyperpigmentation due to repeated scratching. Consult this with a dermatologist if you feel very disturbed. Make sure the blackish color is not bruised. You can try the scrubbing method, but try not too often, just once a week. Use a moisturizer in the area.
Thus the information from me, hopefully you are helped. Regards.
