Thanks for your question. Generally speaking, a dark spot may have several etiologies, from infections, to inflammation to just a bruise. You will require an evaluation to determine the cause of the spot ( a physical exam). An exam will help determine the cause and then will allow for treatment to begin as treatment will be specific to the cause.
