Hyperpigmentation is a medical condition which occurs when an area of the skin becomes much darker in comparison to the rest of the skin tone. This happens due to an excess of a pigment called melanin. Hyper-pigmentation is fairly common and many people have reported this condition at some point in their lives.
Types of Hyperpigmentation
1. Lentigines or Freckled Skin: They are mainly freckles which arise on the skin.
2. Solar Lentigines: Although these are known as age spots, sun spots and liver spots they are caused primarily due to prolonged exposure to the sun.
3. Melasma: This condition mostly seen in pregnant women and is caused due to hormonal changes during pregnancy. Melasma typically manifests as pigmented and patchy areas of discoloration on the face except the eye area.
What causes hyperpigmentation?
- Hyper pigmentation can be hereditary i.e. passed on to children from parents
- Prolonged exposure to sun.
- Picking and poking at the skin can also cause hyper pigmentation.
- Medications such as hormone treatments, antibiotics and anti-seizure drugs may result in it as an unwanted side effect.
- Skin injuries due to bad forms of acne vulgaris and inflammation.
How Homeopathy Works on Hyperpigmentation?
Homoeopathy considers blemishes or pigmentation as a local expression of a systemic / internal disturbance. Homeopathy believes that skin disorders are a reflection of an internal imbalance and to be treated from within. The homeopathic medicines are selected after a full individualizing examination and case-analysis, which includes the medical history of the patient, physical and mental constitution, genetic predisposition and so on. While choosing homeopathic remedies the cause of pigmentation is evaluated, for example, mental stress, hormonal imbalances, sun exposure, nutritional deficiency, poor immune system and so on.
Homeopathic treatment, which gets to the root of the problem will reinforce the immune system and gradually restore the pigmented spots to the normal skin color. Homeopathic medicines restore the hormonal imbalance and control the excessive production of melanin. Homeopathy will not inhibit the natural process of the skin's melanin production. It will act on melanocytes to produce less melanin naturally thus strengthening the skin cells to stay healthy and remove excessive melanin in the skin. This improves the quality (texture) of skin, blemishes disappear and further discoloration of skin stops.
For fast recovery and to maintain the skin texture and glow homeopaths also use external creams which are purely prepared by homeopathic Mother tincture and low potency’s and are very safe and without any side effects.
Homeopathy medicines cure pigmentation from the root cause and assuring the patient of not facing the similar problem in future. Some of the common homeopathic medicines for treating pigmentation are:
- Medicines like Lycopodium Clavatum can be consumed if you experience grayish-yellow discolored face with blue circles around the eyes. It can also cure brown spots on the nose and face.
- Sepia offincinalis can treat chloasma (Yellow spots on the face and a yellow mark across the upper region of the nose and cheeks). This medicine also treats ailments during pregnancy and is best suited for patients who have dark hair.
- Thuja occidentalis should be consumed to treat dry skin with uneven brown spots. People who have waxy faces with dark under eyes should consume this medicine.
- Argenticum nitricum can also be consumed if your face looks pale, old and bluish. It is best suited for people who have tense, hard and brown skin with irregular brown blotches.
- Cadmium sulphuratum can treat yellow stains on the cheeks and nose. This usually worsens due to prolonged exposure to the wind and sun.
- Copaiva offincinalis reduces brown lenticular spots. These spots give a mottled appearance and can itch at times.
- Caulophyllum thalictroides can be consumed by women who experience discoloration of the skin due to uterine and menstrual disorders.
- Plumbum melallicum usually treat liver spots, hyper pigmentation and reduces the oil content of the face.
These remedies treat discoloration of the face along with liver spots, brown spots and excess oil formation of the face which is accompanied by hyperpigmentation.
However, the correct choice and the resulting relief is a matter of experience and right judgment on the part of the homeopathy doctor. The treatment is decided after thorough case taking of the patient. Thus homeopathic remedies of pigmentation are tailor-made and should be taken after consulting a specialized homeopath.

I am 18 years old. There are dark circles under my eyes. I hv already checked up with doctor. They gave some creams. But the problem remains. What I should do.
My fingers both of legs and hands are black unlike my body color which. I want to know what the reason is and any possible remedy. Please respond.
I am 22 years old and I had undergone hair transplantation surgery with 6000 grafts 4 months ago. From the mid 4th month there is markable hair fall that too from transplanted area. These hairs are very thin, light in color and very small. About 30-40 hairs are falling of per day while applying minoxidil, hair oil and head bath .Normal shedding of transplanted hair was happened with a week of post operative. Is this hair fall in 4 month is normal or something wrong ?How can I prevent this hair fall? Can my transplanted hair will grow properly or not? I am worrying a lot about this. Please suggest me how to prevent hair fall and this fall is normal or not? On thing I forgot to mention that I do masturbation once in week or once in two weeks .does this masturbation effects the transplanted hair growth or not? Please help and suggest me doctor.
I have a lots of dandruff on my head. have tried all kinds of shampoos n other stuff. It irritates a lot. So what shall I do to get rid of it.
I hav hyperpigmentation surrounded around the bridge of the nose. It has been pensive for me since last 4 to 5 years. Thought it will vanish by time. But it's not vanishing. I hav done chemical peeling also from one of the dermatologist. But no use. Kindly help me with the better one.
Which is the best one for our skin? A moisturizing lotion or a natural oil like olive oil, coconut oil?
Tinea or ring worm is a fungal infection.
It usually occurs in underarms, chest, thighs and scalp-in areas more prone to sweating.
It presents with red round patches and intense itching.
It can be effectively treated with medicines.
In general measures, wear loose fitting clothes, apply normal powder 3-4 times a day and keep the area as dry as possible.
Consult a dermatologist and avoid using over the counter products since they can cause more harm than benefit.
So how can we get rid of hair fall?
* know your diet - your diet should consist of proteins, vitamins and minerals
*walk as much as you can - if you don't get time to exercise than do vigorous walking when you can
* never skip your meal
Note: the state of hair fall comes from lack of nutrition or hormonal changes such as hypothyroidism whinghch is a very common issue in our daily society, so please try to have a professional diet schedule and live an hair fall free life.
