(Sorry for the poor lighting, and my crappy camera messing up the colour, they're a light brownish really, like a thin mole.)

These strange coloured patches of skin have been on my neck about 2-3 months now, there was about 3 or 4 patches of them
when i first realised them, but they've gotten a little darker so now other people notice them, and a couple more have come (Six of them now).... They came with a stiff neck that is still there, but i've gotten used to it.... rather an achey feeling.

But now im getting quite worried, they don't fade under pressure, and i was expecting them to go after a few week at most...

  • This looks like something that I have and the doctors have called it Teeniaveracolor...not sure if thats spelled right. If it is that try using the shampoo Selsun Blue as a lotion...put it on the patches and leave it there for about an hour then wash it all off, do this for a couple days. If this is the problem it will make it go away.
