PIH

What is Post-Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation (PIH)?

About

The development of wound or irritation such as rash or a pimple, causing inflammation and discoloration of the skin as the injury begins to heal.

It can develop in all skin types, but it tends to be more severe and extended for people with medium to dark complexions. PIH affects both men and women equally. [1]

- Medical diagnosis by a physician is required.
- Affects both men and women.
- Examination under Woods light and skin biopsy may be required.
- Can be physically irritating.

The common causes of PIH are phototoxicity, allergic reactions, inflammatory skin disorders, trauma to the skin, exposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation, reaction to certain drugs such as chlorpromazine and arsenic.
Ages Affected - age of the patient isnt an important factor in case of PIH as it affects people from all age groups and genders.

Symptoms

Symptoms include skin irritation, inflammation of rashes, or pimples and skin discoloration.

People May Experience
Pain - moderate pain due to inflammation of wounds.
Skin changes - discoloration of flat areas of skin that can be tan, red, brown or black depending on the complexion.
