Hi. My name is***** and I am online and available to help you today. Thank you for your patience.

Question and answer is just one of the services I offer. I can also provide you with premium services, such as live telephone or skype consultation, at a small additional cost. Let me know if you are interested.

Waxing would not be expected to cause pigmentary changes in your skin.

While I do not believe this is anything to worry about it probably would be a good idea to show this pigment spot to your primary care MD.

Does this make sense to you?

Thank you for getting back with an answer
I don't understand what could be the reason for the pigmentation as I never had it before and the only thing I did was wax few days prior?

I wasn't well on the day of wax

It is highly unlikely that the waxing caused the pigment changes, even if you were not feeling well.....

It is more probable that the pigmentary area was just more visible after the waxing.

But, the good news?

Your primary care MD should be able to sort things out.

I'm calling it pigmentation but I never had it before and couple of days later after waxit is dark shadow?
I'm just trying to confirm that it's not due to wax and should I stop waxing?
