Hi I am 33 and female. The spots are sporadic. There are several on my arm that have faded significantly and a few here and there on my legs.

Thanks for the reply.

Are they itchy? Or painful?

Let me know.

They are not itchy or painful
Dermatologist: Dr Uzair, Doctor replied 10 months ago

These seem to be an inflammatory reaction which can be due to some kind of allergic reaction to an unknown agent. It does not seem to be anything of serious nature so nothing much to worry about. You can apply 1 % hydrocorticone cream over it for faster recovery.

Hope this helps.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
