Welcome to HCM.

You are having hypermelanosis on arms and legs.

There may be some cause.

Nutritional deficiencies,vitamin and mineral deficiencies,internal diseases,endocrinal disorders,connective tissue diseases,inflammatory skin diseases...etc may be ruled out.

Thorough clinical history and examination may be done by expert dermatologist.

Kojic acid containing cream may be applied on patches.

Glutathion,vitamin C and nicotinic acid may be taken.

You may be benefitted.

Thanks .
