    Hi rizwanjaved555,

    Have your fingertips always been darker, or is this a new occurrence? If the darker color is slightly blue, it could be due to a circulation problem, but there are many other possibilities. It is not possible to diagnose what is happening over the internet. Have you seen a doctor or dermatologist about your symptoms? If not, making an appointment to do so would be a good idea. You might also want to post your question in our Skin Problems and Treatments Community -- the member and our expert on that board may have more insight into what is causing your darker skin.

    Best wishes,
