Skin turning dark

I used to have a wheatish skin colour, but after coming to bangalore, my skin has been turning darker and oily each day and I'm almost totally black now, which is a really horrifying development within 1.5 months. No amount of washing/skin whitening creams are helping stop this effect. I have no habit of using facial creams for any purpose and I only use mild soap for washing my face. This blackening is only visible on my face and nowhere else which is worrying me further. I do not even know whom to consult for this issue. ( I once accidentally met an Ayurveda doctor a week ago, who immediately diagnosed that my skin colour has blackened but he didn't prescribe anything) Please help me save my skin colour...

Hi. Greetings. Firstly, don't panic. Secondly we'll have to diagnose this problem as to which disorder or drug is causing the pigmentation. This will need a proper examination by dermatologist along with Dermoscopy and biopsy also. See a qualified dermatologist in your city. Further queries and snaps may be sent to follow up private chat. Hope this helps. Warm regards, Dr Govind Suresh Mittal, Bangalore.
