Skin pigmentation in pregnancy

Skin pigmentation in pregnancy: Introduction

Skin pigmentation in pregnancy: Skin pigmentation in pregnancy is altered. The changes consist of a deepening of the colour of the areolae, and appearance of the linea nigra on the abdomen, together with a change in colour of the vagina and cervix from pink to a deep purple colour due to venous dilatation. Additionally some women develop brown patches of pigmentation on their faces (typically over the cheekbones.) These changes reverse after pregnancy. See detailed information below for a list of 7 causes of Skin pigmentation in pregnancy, including diseases and drug side effect causes.
