    Default Not sure what these spots are

    Hi,

    Over the last one year, I have started developing these black spots over the upper part of my back as well on the sides of my arm. I believe these are pigmentation marks. My dermat says it's hereditary or caused by exposure to the sun and that nothing can be done about it.

    I have three questions:

    1. Why are these marks showing up? My mother and my sister have it too
    2. Will they spread further and get darker over time?
    3. What can I do to prevent it and cure it? Would laser treament help or a peel? I've read that with peels, they lighten for a while but come back up again.

    Any tip in this regard would be very useful. I am attaching pictures of my arms and my back for your reference.

    Some additional details:
    Age: 25 years
    Diet: Vegetarian

    Thanks and regards,
    Shonita

    hi Atinosh!
    welcome to our forum. As your already know the cause of your pigmentation. i think regular application of good sunscreen may be helpful to avoid the increase in pigmentation. besides laser may be more helpful than peels
