Glad to know that you are winning with this! I have stopped all perfumes for a month already so not sure if this was the initial cause. Dermatologist said it was pigmentation from hair tint which I doubt since the marks are only in the neck area and I have not tinted my hair in a while but the marks have spread.
I have been trying cocoa butter and vItamin E oil from Palmers range and it helps with lightening the marks but I have a long way to go. What is worrying is that it started as a small patch and progressively spread across the front of the neck.
Thank you so much for your feedback - I do feel a bit more positive now!View Thread
Hi Toffee Have you had any successful breakthrough as yet? I hope you hhave something positive to share - have just discovered I have the same which started about 2 months ago. First just in one area on the neck and now going across the neck, It is so frfrustrating - I understand just how you feel. Let me know if there's anything I could try. Thanks.View Thread
