Dyschromia or Hyper pigmentation of Skin...
What is Dyschromia or Hyperpigmentation ?
Dyschromia is a condition characterised by changes in colour of skin, nails or hair. The colour of your skin depends upon the amount of melanocytes that you have. Dyschromia is typically in form of hyper pigmentation that causes dark patches on the skin. Melasma is also a form of dyschromia in which tan or brown patches commonly appear on face.
What are the symptoms of this condition?
Signs of dyschromia or hyperpigmentation include:
Prolonged exposure to sun can result in increased density of melanocytes – the pigment producing cells – that cause darkening of skin. In women, hormonal changes at time of pregnancy, menopause, intake of birth control pills, or going for a hormone replacement therapy may cause the appearance of patches on the skin
At times changes in blood vessels under the epidermis may result in dyschromia. These changes can occur because of blood thinning medicines or inflammation of blood vessels. If the blood vessels rupture, blood may get into tissues beneath the skin, form blood spots that make skin appear patchy.
In some people radiation therapy causes discolouration or hyper pigmentation.
