If there is patchy pigmentation we have to rule out hormonal causes sometimes patchy pigmentation around the mouth around the neck and around the fold areas may be due to excessive insulin secretion which may be due to a very high carbohydrate and low protein diet. There are many local and systemic treatment options which should help you but should be treated depending on the specific cause. Sometimes if the pigmentation is just around the mouth it may be due to a type fungal infection.
