Customer Question

.I noticed some blotchy areas on my neck and shoulders a few weeks ago and they haven't gone away. They're a few shades darker than my skin and some are slightly pink. I keep getting a few more spots every week. I've looked at pictures online and they resemble pityriasis versicolor. I can send a picture if that helps
