I understand your concern.

Well as you describe,possible causes may include increased pigmentation,Eczema,Hormonal changes,Freckles.

She needs to be seen by a dermatologist for further evaluation and management.

The spots may be helped with superficial peels and hydroxyquinone cream.

Dermabrasion and Microdermabrasion Treatment can be advised.
