Melasma on the Neck?
Doctor Answers 2
Poikiloderma of Civatte and acanthosis nigricans more likely than melasma on the neck
Thank you for your question BrTsr. Melasma is a common condition characterized by the appearance of dark patches on the skin. Commonly affected areas include the forehead, cheeks, and upper lip, as these areas have high levels of sun exposure. The neck is an uncommon area to be affected with melasma. Poikiloderma if Civatte and acanthosis nigricans are more common on the neck. Please consult with a doctor for specific recommendations. Good luck!
