I look at my legs from knee down, and the skin tone is different from the rest of my legs, knee up. It's splotchy and has different hues to it, in a camouflage-like pattern, without any bumps. I've had this for years, and I was wondering, is there a way get rid of those patterns and have clear skin?

I have exactly the same. It started last year when i went away to greece on holiday. At first i thought i had not rubbed in my suntan lotion properly because i had brown legs with white splogy bits on them but my mum seems to think that i just have uneven skin pigmentation? what ever that is?

Yes, exactly what I have! I wonder if anyone knows how to even out the skin tones?

Oh my gosh, I thought I was the only one with weird-camoflauge-splotchy-looking skin! I never had it all my life, it just "suddenly" appeared one year and it's on my lower back. It's weird looking. And I don't know how I got it. It gets darker during the summer though. Hmmm... I have no idea.

I have this all over my torso (front and back), a bit on my shoulders/upper arms, and my neck. It gets worse in humidity, so if I go to dry climates, it goes away.

My dad has it, too, so I assumed it was genetic or something.
