Are those pictures clear enough. The spots are mostly on the sides of both butt cheeks and go upwards towards my hips.

Do they hurt or itch?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
No. No discomfort at all.

They literally just showed up overnight. I can't feel them. They are flat and small and round. They almost look like a bunch of small beauty marks or freckles. About the size of a pin head or a little bigger. They are a reddish brown color. There is one red spot that's looks more like a rash and about 10x the size of the rest of them on one side.

do you have a better pic?

maybe zoom out a touch but remain anonymous of course
