Hyper/Hypo-Pigmentation of the Skin
Susan Evans, MD posted:
Dear Readers,

I get a number of questions regarding either hyperpigmentation of the skin where the color of your skin deepens in certain areas.

Similarly I get a number of questions regarding hypopigmentation, where areas of the skin become much lighter than the surrounding skin.

This link may answer some of your questions.
