Dark Spots On Chest And Back

Yes: This postinflammatory pigmentation should be gone about two years after you stop having acne. All acne can be well-controlled with today's rx's. If it bothers you, you may try a quinone bleach; most people will not think it's anything to be concerned about, but rather something distinctive to you. I hope that your primary acne problem is being managed as it should be. ...Read more

I have had an asymmetrical mole for over 5 years is it cancerous,also i have dark spots all over my back and my chest ?
Most likely not: Asymmetry (irregular borders) is one of the features which makes doctors worry about a mole being malignant. However, some people do tend to grow irregular moles all over their body which are perfectly benign. If this mole has not changed in 5 years it is most likely benign. However, I do suggest you have it checked and I think you would benefit from routine skin check ups with your doctor. ...Read more

Post inflammatory: Post inflammatory hyperpigmentation is a common and normal response during the healing process. When traumatized skin heals, redness, followed by dark discoloration often occurs. With time, the site will usually resume normal coloration to match the surrounding skin. Normalization may happen faster with good skin care with hypoallergenic washes and moisturizers.

I have lots of acne scars and spots over my face, chest, and back. They are dark because of my skin tone and hyperpigmention. How do I get rid of them?
Multiple options: You've got multiple options for treating your acne scars, even with your darker complexion. For example, microneedling is a safe and effective option that can be used on all skin types. Other options include chemical peels and laser treatments. The 'tincture of time' can also be effective as these scars will lighten up over time even if you do nothing at all. Skin lightening creams can also help. ...Read more

Depends: Not clear on your question nor timing of the "spots." most brown spots on the chest are from sun damage and form over time. Others are harmless age spots. Some are actually dark purple blood vessel growths, which are also harmless. Occasionally, some rashes can look like dark spots. If you are worried or if they are sudden onset they should be looked at by your doctor or a dermatologist. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
