Doctor :   Hello, Thanks for the query. If you have recently developed these areas of hyperpigmentation, it could be due to t he side effect of the medications that you are on. The other cause could be a fungal infection that has remained asymptomatic. It is recommended that you consult a dermatologist for an examination and specific investigations to rule out tinea infections. Sometimes even vitamin deficiencies or nutrient deficiencies can cause hyperpigmentation. Once the diagnosis is made, we can treat it specifically. You might also need to check your hormonal levels to rule out cushing's disease which causes hyperpigmentation. Hope this helped. Regards
