What is the dark discoloration on the neck and stomach?
Hi, my daughter has severe allergies and is on all types of meds and allergy shots. But we have noticed that she has a dark discoloration on her neck, upper stomach and both sides of her belly button. It looks like she is dirty but she isnt She also has recently had a gastritis and was on medication for that as well
Hi. As per your case history of dark skin. My treatment advice is –
1. Avoid sun-exposure and use a good sun-screen with spf more than 30. 2. Apply a kojic acid cream like kojivit twice daily on dark skin. 3. Take a vitamin b12 supplement once daily for 30days . 4. Other treatment options are oral isotretinoin, topical hydroquinone and chemical peeling done by a dermatologist.
Thanks. Dr.Harshit Bhachech. MBBS, DDVL.
