got my cast taken off today and my hair on my arm and hand have grown bigger and darker than my hand without the cast on, why has this happening?

Hair: Casting any extremity often leads to skin pigment changes and hair growth beneath the cast. The hair is often darker than normal. These are usually transient findings which should go back to normal soon. This occurs likely because of a combination of increased blood flow and shading the area from the sun.
