    I'm starting to get brownish patches of skin on my stomach... Is it a pregnancy thing?

    At first I thought it was a chocolate smudge lol but it won't come off

    I think it is known as 'Chloasma'. I have some on my face which has got worse with the sun and my pregnancy. It is sometimes called 'the mask of pregnancy' though not heard of it so much on bellies. Have you exposed your tum to the sun lately?

    There is some info here http://dermnetnz.org/colour/melasma.html
