Pigmentary Disorder

What is Pigmentary Disorder​ ?

Pigmentation is when certain areas of the skin turn darker than the rest. It can appear in smaller patches, cover larger areas or in some cases, even the entire body. This happens when the skin produces more melanin than usual.
Genetics, such as a family with freckles. Hormone changes, such as during puberty or pregnancy. Injury to the skin (for example, acne, cuts or burns), which is sometimes called postinflammatory hyperpigmentation. Medications, such as oral contraceptives (birth control pills) and drugs that cause sensitivity to light.
