Skin pigment. : Most cases of such “burns“ are actually irritations of the epidermis where the pigment is made. This results in a deposition of more pigment, in, say a few weeks in a Scotch Irish person, and much longer.and much more seriously in black.persons. See a cosmetically oriented dermatologists asap.
