Hi, Sorry about this symptom. If there is pigmentation around marks, these could indicate some hormonal imbalance for which please consult an endocrinologist. If no discoloration nor any pain, redness or discharge, please ignore these as they may be part of growing up and go away. May use soothing lotion like Calamine 2-3 times daily. Please upload couple of snaps of hips, arm.
