I have a very unusual story and this has not been diagnosed as yet so please help me
I was born with a very beautiful skin but then after a month or so after my birth i had a rash from a nappy or something that my skin became dark from some areas while remained lighter at some areas , i think it is a sort of hyper pigmentation the last time i got it checked from a doctor was in 1996 in Canada at the age of 7years of age and now i am a 21 year old girl , i was not conscious about this earlier but now i am , all parts of body look horrible , only my face has not been affected , and the pattern of this hyper pigmentation is very irregular my u[[er body has been effected the most , my arms , my back , stomach and chest area and neck , while my legs r quite better.... i am very sad about this i can wear clothes that i want and do not want to face anyone is there a way i can get my skin even toned ? but not in the darker shade as this option was given to me when i went to Canada for my check up.
