Thanks for the information

These spots are indicative of hyperpigmentation in the skin

The most common reason in such cases is an excessive sun exposure

These are usually harmless and does not develop in to anything serious

They can get better with application of topical retinoids

You can make an appointment with the dermatologist to have proper treatment for it but I can tell you that it is not a serious thing

Sometime a hormonal imbalance can be the reason behind such spots
