OK. While this could just be localize hyperpigmentation and not indicative of any other medical disorder, this could be a sign of Addison's disease (low cortisol levels from the adrenal glands) or a condition called hemochromatosis or iron overload. Usually these disorders cause brown spots in many areas of the body, though. The best thing for you to do is have a doctor take a look at these and run some blood studies.
