Different Causes of Brown Spots and Pigment
There have been many good questions about pigment problems and brown spots in the blog recently. I wish there was a simple answer to these problems, and I know you and millions of other women would like one too.
There are many different causes of pigment on the face, and you must find the cause (your diagnosis) because it’s the only way that treatment will be effective. So…….. do you have melasma (more hormonal and pregnancy), sun damage spots (lentigines) or blotches, more raised brown growths (seborrheic keratoses), spots that are post acne or after other rashes/irritations?? And then there are some rarer internal causes like adrenal gland problems. Some women have 2 or 3 of these problems together. Your dermatologist can help you figure out the cause of your pigment problem.
