Have tanning in forehead and back of neck. No medication now. What is the cure for this?

My daughter has developed a significant brownish tan to her forehead and back of neck. She does play softball and wears her hair tied back but am concerned why only these areas. She is pale skinned but does tan in the summer after much exposure. Her face has freckles and she usually burns but these areas are tan and dark brown. just noticed this today.

I understand your query regarding your daughter's skin problem
It may be due to sun exposure ,acanthosis or allergic condition.
It is possible to have more tanning over particular one area.
she need to apply good sunscreen lotion twice a day.
it is better to consult dermatologist.
weight gain is also reason for darkness,when it is associated with some hormonal problem.
do not rub or scrub over the affected area.
