Causes Of Linea Nigra
Unusual: It's more common with combination hormones, especially with the higher dose pills, and of course in pregnancy. I've not seen it with Mirena (levonorgestrel) since the amount of systemic hormone (amount in your body's circulation) is very small. Make sure you're not pregnant and check with your Doc if you notice more darkening pigmentation. Take care. ...Read more

Part of healing: When there is injury to our skin, inflammation occurs which means the area becomes red, warm, tender and with swelling. The swelling occurs under the skin layers and then can leak out of an open wound. The fluid contains water, protein, electrolytes and cells that give it color.
