Other Pigmentation Problems

Post-inflammatory pigmentation

Any damage to the skin from trauma (cuts, wounds) or inflammation (rashes, pimples) may result in discolouration of the skin.  Compared with normal skin, these areas may appear slightly darker in colour (hyperpigmentation) or slightly lighter (hypopigmentation).

This transient pigmentation can occur all skin types, but is more common and more persistent in people with skin of colour (pigmented/coloured skin). 

Post-inflammatory pigmentation can be challenging to treat, with pigmentation occasionally persisting for months or years depending on the initial cause.

Prescribed creams and lasers can be trialled to see if the pigment can be cleared quickly.
