    I have really pale skin on my face, arms, legs and chest but my tummy is tanned even though that's the part of me that never sees the sun! Does anyone else have this or anything like this? I'm worried there could be something wrong. Thank you.

    Hyperpigmentation is very common and usually completely harmless, requiring no treatment. It can be caused by birth control, pregnancy, genetics, or several other factors.*

    Obviously if there is pain or any sudden change in appearance, you should see a doctor. *
