Melasma is a skin condition that can arise due to hormonal changes during pregnancy as well as from exposure to the sun. Women are more likely than men to develop melasma. The characteristics of Melasma are brown or gray-brown patches that most often occur on the cheeks, the forehead, nose and the chin.
