I have dark patches on my forehead that just recently showed

Customer Question

I have dark patches on my forehead that just recently showed up and I also have dark patches on my on my arms that itch horrible at times. I have been diagnosed with Diabetes that I have taken Metformin for in the past, however, it tears my stomach up. So, in the past I have been on that med, but not this year. My blood sugars run between 200-275 without medication on a fasting bloodsugar. Can you help me with this dilema?
