These dark brown stains can be due to hyperpigmentation skin or post inflammatory hyperpigmentation. Treatment options include treatment with vitamin C and hydrocortisone, peel with carbon dioxide snow and alexandrite and ND-Yag Q-Switched laser treatment preceded by a hydroquinone-based application. Please discuss these options with your dermatologist.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.

Hello doctor, where can the treatment for this be done ? I also have somewhat similar hyperpigmentation as there is uneven skin tone on the penis with light and dark shades throughout the shaft. No disease or STD as per my last checkup.
