Melasma is one of the more obvious skin conditions that creates brown to grayish-brown patches on the face. It’s most obvious on the cheeks, nose, chin and above the upper lip. However, this skin condition also appears on areas exposed to frequent sun like the forearms or back of the neck. Pregnancy often triggers melasma in women. While wearing sunscreen can provide some protection, it doesn’t fade these patches. High Valley Dermatology in Idaho Falls provides a solution for these skin problems.
