Since you are online, could you please give some more information:

Since how long have you had these symptoms?

Do the spots itch?

Do you have it on any other part of the body?

I am available online to help you further after I get this info.

I noticed a cluster of very tiny small red spots clustered together in the summer of 2005. It started out as just one red spot in tiny clusters, not very noticeable, I thought maybe it was from an insect bite. In about a couple of months it got bigger, very noticeable then turned brown. Now I have even more spots popping up, starting out red then turning brown.

The spots don't itch, but I have a few tiny brown spots on the upper part of my back.

They sound very much like an allergy. It is probable that you have developed an allergy to something, you should check out whether you have started wearing any new shoes or a new pant within this period, whether you started any new soap, ointment or detergent. If you do find anything which could be the cause, then try to avoid it.

Next, you can take an anti-allergic tablet, an antihistamine. You can take Tab. Alavert 10 mg once daily (OTC). Also, apply a soothing lotion like calamine lotion, also available online.

There are various other possibilities like some blood conditions which might cause similar spots, but they are most likely to be allergy. So you can try out these two steps.

However, if new spots kep on appearing after you have tried this out for about 10 days, then you should approach your doctor and get it examined.
