Please see doctor: You really need to see your doctor to determine what is causing the bronzing you've described. I previously mentioned hemochromatosis because those who have it may appear bronzed. However, it is not a common disorder. You merit a comprehensive evaluation by a physician who will take a thorough history and perform a physical exam to determine if you need any testing. Best wishes!
