Hello. On my neck there are the dark spots that kinda look like dirt like I haven't bathed. I first noticed it when I got pregnant when my mother told me to wash my neck better. But now two years later its still there and I was just looking in the mirror and found that it moved to the other side of my neck. It doesn't hurt. I don't feel pain nor am I sick. I don't have insurance and can't afford to get any. I'm not an old lady I'm only 23 years old. I've tried to look it up but nothing has been helpful. It looks just like dirt. also on my arm there is a patch of white dry skin. I am an olive color and this is defiantly noticeable I went to the docotrs when I was a kid and they told me it was teana virascolor sorry bad speller. Could the neck spot be apart of this?
