I have flat brown spots (not age spots) on the claves of my legs and tops of my arms between my wrists and elbows. The spots have started to spread and multiple over time but a lot in the last year. MOre onto my hands and spreading all over my legs. At first (ANd some are like that always) they are realy only noticable in the lifght and have no color. They look like a bunch of freckles from far away but up close you can tell they arent. ONe dermatologist told me it was "Solar Lentigo". But they spread all winter long, even though my legs were never exposed to the sun.
I have no idea what it is....i thought flat worts? but the dermatologist said no. They are multiplying and getting bigger. Someone help! I dont know if they'll go to more body parts or what!

For the past 9 months I have seen more doctors than I can count on both hands. I have diagnosed myself as having some type of fungal infection. You can look up zygomycosis to see if your symptoms are the same. If you put Desitin on the dark areas you can get a clear view of tiny pin ****k marks. You may want to get a magnifying glass for a better view. You can boil a tablespoon of Oregano in a medium size pot, let it cool down long enough so that it's not to hot. Place the affected area in the pot for about 10 minutes. If you don't see anything coming out from the brown spots, then I don't have a clue. You can also use Epsom salt. Both work well extracting toxins from your body. You can also put it in your bath water. I will let you know when my lab. report comes back. I just want it to be over so I can focus on more important things in life. Lot's of luck!Tina
