? cause: Anything that causes inflammation of skin can cause permanent pigment changes. Light people can get dark marks; darker skin can get either more or less pigmented areas. It is hard to say what is causing your itch. Your best bet for normalizing the color of the affected skin is to control the itching with oral medication to stop your scratching.
