Aug 20, 2019 · Melasma and the Mental Health effects of skin conditions in Skin Health

We visited Rome last September and loved it! I live in Tennessee so I understand about heat and wearing lots of sunscreen! Take care and bless you!

Thank you so much for sharing what has helped you! I’m going to ask my dermatologist next time I see her! Please don’t say that you’ll never get married. I know it’s so hard to feel confident, but someone will love you for your heart. My husband tells me it’s way more noticeable and important to me than anyone else. I think he’s right. When you see someone with something on their face do you focus on it? I don’t- I’m much more forgiving of others. Also, my 9 year old nephew just got diagnosed with an aggressive form of Crohn’s disease- it really puts things in perspective. Hang in there!

Thank you so much! My Melasma is below the dermal layer. In certain lighting you can hardly tell and in other, more shadow type, lighting it looks really dark (almost black). I’m not sure the cream would get that deep. I had a “mustache” after my youngest was born, but he is now 18. Over the years it has shifted to my chin. I honestly am done spending money at this point. I’m sorry that you’re was caused by the laser treatment- that’s so frustrating! Cindy

Thanks for your response. I have been under the care of a dermatologist since my diagnosis. I took Accutane for acne when I was younger and wonder if this may have caused it. My dermatologist doesn’t think so. I have tried hydroquinone, but it never helped. I went to a holistic doctor and he had me try azelaic acid gel. I tried acupuncture, herbal supplements, eating super clean and cutting out gluten. I’ve also use face products that do not contain a lot of chemicals. It’s mostly on my chin so I think it’s hormonal. I was on natural progesterone for awhile but it didn’t help. As you can see, I have tried pretty much everything. Now I’m worried about my mental well-being because it bothers me so much. I feel like it’s such a curse to never go out in the sun without covering my face. Even just the heat makes it worse. Thanks for listening 😊

I have been dealing with Melasma most of my adult life. It started when I was pregnant with my second child on my upper lip. Now I’m in my 40s and have it on my chin. I have tried everything and have spent a lot of money trying to make it better. It is very depressing to never be able to go in the sun without a hat on. Also, heat makes it worse. It is very depressing and I have no self-confidence. Has anyone else dealt with this and had any luck with treatments?
