SKIN DISCOLOURATION

WHAT IS IT?

 

Skin discolouration is patches of irregular colour on the skin, and can either be darker or lighter than your skins normal skin colour. It can affect everyone and has many different causes but the most common causes are over exposure to the sun, hormonal imbalances, pregnancy, genetics and sometimes you may even be born with it.

When patches are darker than the normal skin colour, it is often known as Hyperpigmentation, it can be caused by various factors such as over exposure to the sun, injury and hormonal imbalances that all cause the over production of melanin in the skin, resulting in darker patches over the skin. When patches occur lighter than the rest of the skin it is known as Hypopigmentation, which is caused by various factors such as autoimmune diseases, injury, under active melanocytes and fungal infection which results in the under production or absence of melanin in certain spots of the skin, giving it a lighter appearance.

When the skin appears red it normally indicates that an injury to blood vessels has occurred, blood then accumulates in the area causing a red patch to appear, hot flushes often caused by hormones can cause blood to rush to the area giving it a red appearance.
