Hello, I have tanned skin but notice that my skin is darker some days than others or may even be lighter in the morning and then darken over the day. Does anyone else get this? If so, I would be interested to know if you have PSC with IBD or without IBD. I’m just curious if it is something to do with the gut or liver.
I had very obvious rich tanned skin when I had PSC. As the disease progressed though it changed from that rich bright tan to more orangey then finally on the gray side looking more like a haggard old man near death, which I was. I did NOT have IBD.

While pre-tx, I looked at my skin daily to try to detect any darkening or yellowing. I had a co-worker tell my I looked pale on days I thought I looked yellow. But when it did get darker/yeloower, it did not change throughout the day.
There are occasional days post-tx that I wonder if my skin look different from the day before; old habits die hard.
