Hello, I have brown indented spots that are spreading all over my body and I don't know what it is.

I read and article and saw some pictures of Diabetes Dermopathy which seems to identify with some of the marks on my shins but the problem with this is that the site only speaks about this marks being on the skin alone.


What mad me feel kind of positive about the site is that it had more links which let me to this link:


One of the points of identifying my problem is that I got this stye in my eye that has been there for a lest 10 months and it does not look like its going anywhere soon.

Anyways, I have these same oval or round indented marks on my arms, back, legs/thigh, stomach and other places that I have not bothered to look.

I was an alcoholic and a smoker (cigarettes) for several years. Once I got off of the bottle I began to eat about a pound of chocolate a day. I went from 210 to 257 in a period of 10 months, but now I'm back down in weight which is 196. It seems as soon as I dropped the weight through eating better these spots started showing up in the droves. I'm now 37 turning 38 this year. The first time I really noticed these spots was when I hit a table on my shin and it hurt terribly bad. The spot became black but then I started noticing these same spots (indented brown circular spots) on my side area of my stomach.

I also started noticing small white spots as well which is what gave me the courage to post on this site.

I would really appreciate it if I can get some answer or even some leads if possible.

Thank you Kindly,
