Definitely cosmetic, docs claim they can’t even see it. I normally have super-pale white skin, so the tan color is quite odd. It first appeared on the skin right below the eyebrow toward the outside over the bone. To my knowledge there’s no eye muscles or soft tissue there, just skin right over the bone – it’s crazy! It looks almost exactly like I got some slightly darker flesh toned eye shadow and smoothed it evenly over. [/quote]
What you are describing sounds like it could be Melasma. It happened to me my first experience with Graves’. It is more frequently known as the Mask of Pregnancy but also occurs with thyroid patients. Like we needed something else associated with thyroid patients, right?! If that is what it is, then sun protection is your best defense. Mine eventally faded.
