Linea nigra w/o being preg? I'm darker skinned, I have what looks like the start of linea nigra from belly button to pubis. Neg hpts. Periods on time.
Possible.: Some dark-complected women have a visible linea nigra whether they are pregnant or not; it may have been there all along and you only noticed it recently. While it is unlikely that you are pregnant it's not totally out of the question. If you're sure that the line wasn't there before and now it is, you should see your gyn to rule out pregnancy & hormonal issues, e.g. Adrenal insufficiency. ...Read more

I have had a postive on my OPK for going on 4 days. The surge line is darker than the control line. When will the surge lighten or go away completely?
Stop testing: It is normal for ovulation kits to stay normal for several days then become negative. There is no need to check beyond the initial positive result. The hormonal rise that causes the positive result lingers for a few days which will keep an ovulation test positive. Once it is positive then you should begin having intercourse daily. Don't waste money buying more kits ...Read more
A lightly dark colored vertical line appeared on big toe 3 years ago. some of of my other toes are darker, and a line on index. Melanoma? (I'm black)
Most likely this does not represent melanoma. However, evaluation by a dermatologist is recommended. If the pigmentation has not changed in 3 years and you have another similar pigment streak on another nail, it would be reasonable to assume these are benign nevi. Do see a specialist to be assured of this! ...Read more

If dark circles are apparent from think skin, visible blood vessels & muscles underneath the eye, are fine lines related? Dark circles vs hyperpig.?
Partially: As you mention, dark circles are due to the thin skin and appearance of the blood vessels but the thin skin itself has a tendency to wrinkle more due to aging process and like an empty baloon that looks darker than an inflated one, the wrinkled skin looks darker than when its stretched. In some, the hyperpigmented skin is the problem and that has different solution. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
