Hello. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
Are the skin rash complaints accompanied by itching or numb sensation?
Complaints about the appearance of skin rashes in the form of black spots on the face around the lips to the chin can be caused by several possibilities, including:
Pityriasis versicolor, also known as tinea versicolor or phlegm, is a fungal infection of Malassezia furfur in the upper layers of the skin, symptoms: white to black brown spots, fine scales, well-defined, irregular shapes, irregular, usually accompanied by itching, most often found on the top of the chest, upper arms, neck, face, to the scalp
Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, which is a general effect of lesions or inflammation (eg post-trauma, post-atopic dermatitis, post-contact dermatitis, post-psoriasis), is more pronounced in people with dark skin, symptoms: skin lesions in the form of discoloration to black, shape irregular, its location in the area of the former site of injury or inflammation, can last for several months or years
Melasma, which is excessive melanosis that results in progressive and scaly discoloration in areas of skin that are exposed to excessive sunlight, the most common location is the face and back side of the forearm, more often experienced by women, usually (though not always) occurring on both sides of the body , more susceptible to Asian races

If the complaint is felt to be so disturbing, we recommend that you consult directly with a dermatologist and then be able to do the necessary evaluation and treatment. Your doctor may give you ointments / creams, and consider special measures if there are indications, for example: chemical peels or laser therapy. As a suggestion, you should maintain your personal hygiene, use sunscreen if you have a lot of outdoor activities, and use personal protective equipment to reduce sun exposure (for example: umbrellas, hats).
