Melasma is a skin discoloration that commonly occurs in women caused by the production of too much melanin. It is characterized by brownish pigmentation or patches which form on the face, around the neck, or on the forearm. The proximate sources of Melasma are not yet known. However, there are certain circumstances that may trigger its appearance such as pregnancy, cosmetic allergy, and overuse of anti-seizure medications. It is also referred to as the “mask of pregnancy” or chloasma because the most severe discoloration happens in pregnant women. Melasma in pregnant women may be gone a couple of months after giving birth.
The early signs of Melasma can be noticed through grayish pigmentations that start on the cheeks, forehead, bridge of the nose, above the upper lip, or the chin. Unlike freckles, Melasma are bigger, darker, and closer to each other. It forms in cluster or pattern which can further spread throughout the face.
