Not treatable: Some of the spots are probably due to acne while others are probably solar lentigos. The acne marks fade after several months; the others are permanent.

Pityriasis rosea?: Rashes are difficult to describe in words. A primary care doctor or a dermatologist can examine light brown spots to see what it might be. Sometimes rashes are related to viruses, allergies, medications, etc., but many times they are not. For odd rashes, skin biopsy may be done by a dermatologist. One should bring to the doctor a list of all medications used in the month before the rash appeared. ...Read more
