Extremely Darker Skin On Face And Neck

The skin on my face and neck is extremely darker than the rest of my body and is very noticeable, and it just happened in the last 2 years. What caused it and how can I get the skin on my neck and face to be the same complexion as the rest of my body? Some background information, in the last 3 years, I gained a lot of weight also, and now I am eating healthier, and I also am starting to be on a daily skin care regimen (I m 15, and I don t have any acne yet) but I really want to lighten up the skin on my face and neck because it s extremely noticeable and I hate it. Also, a few weeks ago I was sick with a cold and the tip of my top lip swelled up and bumps started forming around them, the bumps are gone, and the swelling went down, but now there is a very noticeable dark line where the bumps were, and I wanted to fade that too because it looks like I have a mustache and I don t. Please help me.

You should go in with checks of your adrenal gland as skin above the collar bone can get discoloured with abnormal functioning of adrenal gland. There can be typical bronzing of the skin.
