  • Seems to me that there could be 2 possibilities, but only one answer. first, those dots could simply be an acne-like condition, in which your skin looks bad now, but will clear up by itself in the long run. However, the second is much more serious. You could have had prolonged exposure to UV rays from being outside, or whatever else, and have developed early stage melanoma. Either way, YOU MUST GET TO A DERMATOLOGIST!! Melanoma, if detected early, can be treated, and sometimes reversed if quarantined to a certain area and removed. again, it could be nothing, but when the situation is as serious as this, you need to try to get to a free clinic and at least talk to a General Physician to see if you should proceed to the dermatologist. Good luck!
