Thanks for using Healthcaremagic,

You are having dark spots on forehead that is hyperpigmentation. If you have already done tests of hormones and it is only pigmentation problem then consulting a good Dermatologist can solve problem.

As there are many new treatments like LASER are available apart from chemical peeling and medical treatment.

You should also consult Physician and investigate for hormones like Thyroid, cortisol, PCOD. etc.

You may need various tests like Ultrasonography of abdomen,T3,T4 and TSH, serum cortisol level etc.

Please avoid exposure to sun light and use very good sun screen lotion with SPF >15 at least. Take balanced diet with fresh fruits and green vegetables, take plenty of water.

I hope you will respond to treatment and improve in few weeks.

Wish you good Luck.

Take care.
