Melasma is one of the most prominent skin problems in the world. Nearly 6 million Americans suffer from melasma. The problem reveals itself in the form of dark spots on skin including the nose, cheeks, forehead, upper lip and chin. However, the dark spots of melasma can be found in other areas that are exposed to the sun. Other less-common areas include the neck and forearms.
