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!
