What Causes Hyperpigmentation In Children
Skin darkening: Unfortunately there are many types of hyperpigmentation, so the answer is difficult. Post-inflammatory (after a rash or injury) types are common, but there are also endocrine (hormonal), syndromic (genetic), and metabolic or disease associated types. This is, however, a very brief list. More information would help.
Stop it: Unless you have no alternative or unless you tolerate the pigmentation. You neglected to indicate the reason for using it, the dose, or the duration.See 1 more doctor answer
Very unlikely.: Doubtful from gall bladder disease alone. In the case of obstruction due to gallstones with the development of jaundice, which can cause itching, chronic scratching could possibly cause hyperpigmentation. Other than that, by itself, it is unlikely to do so. However, other diseases can cause it so get a thorough checkup.
Multiple reasons: Hyperpigmentation may be caused by sun damage, inflammation, or other skin injuries, including those related to acne vulgaris. In cushing's disease, there is excessive adrenocorticotropic hormone (acth) production, which leads to hyperpigmentation because msh (melanocyte stimulating hormone) production is a byproduct of acth synthesis from proopiomelanocortin (pomc).See 1 more doctor answer
What are some hereditary causes of entire body brown hyperpigmentation that passes from motherto daughter?
Hereditary hyperpigm: Skin hyperpigmentation can be hereditary and can be passed on to family members with variable phenotypic expression.
Hyperpigmentation: Hyperpigmentation (or darkened skin) is caused by a variety of things. Here are a few common causes: 1) ultraviolet sunlight 2) hormones in the body (can be related to pregnancy - melasma) 3) post-inflammation from any number of causes (hair plucking, acne, trauma, harsh skin care products or laser treatments) treatment may include time, skin lighteners, ipl laser, sun protection. Hope this helps.See 1 more doctor answer
Hyperpigmentation: The combination of the chemical peels, laser treatments and intense pulsed light therapies may be helpful, but may aggravate pigmentation in some cases. However, nothing has been found useful to eradicate dermal melanosis.
Could some sort of venous insufficiency cause hyperpigmentation, intermittent flushing on face and neck? Also puffiness, that's worse in the morning.
No: venous insufficiency refers to loss of venous valve function in veins usually saphenous in legs. This causes varicose veins which when inflamed induce phlebitis of leg veins and deposition of pigmentation in lower legs, the sign of post phlebitis syndrome. This to the best of my knowledge does not occur in the jugular veins of the head and neck,
Exogenous ochronosis: Higher strengths and persistent, sustained use of hydroquinone (eg 6 months or more) especially in darker skin types are risk factors for exogenous ochronosis. This results in brownish-yellow pigmented globules in the skin's collagen layers. Prevention is key by avoiding excessive use!
What is the cause of the hyperpigmentation in people with cushing syndrome and addison's disease?
Pituitary hormone: These people have increased secretion of crh (corticotropin releasing hormone & acth (adrenocorticotropic hormone, also called corticotropin) from the pituitary gland. The cells that secrete acth also secrete melanocyt stimulating hormone (msh). Msh stimulates skin and mucus cells to secrete melanin (dark bronze pigment) which leads to the hyperpigmentation. That's the full story!See 1 more doctor answer
What to do if I have hyperpigmentation on both earlobes and they are dark. Can weed /drinking beer cause/worse hyperpigmentation?
Do you smoke cigs?: Tobacco smoking is associated with hyperpigmentation in some people (smokers' melanosis). It is often on the lips and below the mouth, but it can be other places. It will go away in most people if they quit. I am not aware of any reports of this occurring with just marijuana or with drinking beer or any other alcoholic beverage. Iron overload (hemachromatosis)can do this but not just earlobe. See md.
After pregnancy: Bleaching creams or laser surgery your obgyn can prob rec some or see a derm or plastic surgeon.
Chemical peels work: Chemical peels, including glycolic acid, can be effective in treating the hyperpigmentation from acne. Depending on your skin tone, laser and ipl (intense pulsed light) are effective as well. However it's important that your acne breakouts are under control, otherwise you'll be chasing the problem.
Is laser skin resurfacing an effective procedure for facial hyperpigmentation caused by addison's disease?
Possibly: Thanks for an excellent question. I would reccomend you see a board certified dermatologist to exam your pigmentation and skin quality prior to adding any laser energy.
Anything I can do to fade away the colour caused by hyperpigmentation? I have a wound before around mole and now surrounding turns grey
Time will help: But if you like to get the area look better, you have to use combination steroid and HQ like Triluma cream. But you have to be careful not to use it for too long. Just twice per day for two to three weeks.
