Is Hemosiderin Staining the Same Thing As Hyperpigmentation?
Doctor Answers (1)
Hemosiderin staining is different from hyperpigmentation
No , hemosiderin is different from hyperpigmentation. Hemosiderin results from old blood breakdown into the skin from a variety of causes. It is usually reddish brown or purple and difficult to remove. Hyperpigmentation is entirely different. Hyperpigmentation may respond to bleaching creams and treatment.
