Extreme skin discoloration?
An_255812 posted:
The top half of my body is a light caramel color, the bottom half is dark brown, almost black looking, it wasn't always this way. What could be wrong?

There are many causes for skin discoloration like skin cancer, exposure to sun, etc. You should consult a dermatologist soon.

Best wishes,
