OMG!! My knees are very dark, keep trying to scrub them, bought some fade out cream but all that does is irritate my skin. I do moisturise with a body butter day & night. No difference though dread to think how bad they'd look if I didn't! GP says I must kneel a lot but I don't, in fact very careful not too as they're so noticeable. My elbows are a little marked & in summer when I catch the sun my knuckles, finger joints & toe joints darken. I have very pale skin everywhere else so it really shows. Any little mark anywhere causes dark scarring too which always makes it look much worse. My little toes if shoes rub can get a hard nub on them, a bit like a corn but not overly painful which I can then pull off in a lump leaving pink skin underneath.
How bizarre...Didn't connect that this could be related.
