Question Skin darkening on forehead and around eyes...

For several years now, my husband has had skin darkening (mainly on his forehead and around his eyes). I'd say it started about 7 years ago and over the last 3-4 years it's gotten darker. He's very self conscious about it.

I've been trying to research it online to see what could cause it but haven't found much. My husband is of hispanic descent and is overweight. I personally thought it might have something to do with diabetes (or something along those lines) however he went to the doctor and he is not diabetic and his sugars are normal. They did not diagnos it as anything and just gave him creams to try and lighten it. Needless to say the creams have not worked.

Any thoughts out there on what this could be? He has scheduled an appointment with a new doctor but it's not until June. I was just hoping to get the opinions of others.
