In brief: Usually

Most cases of cutaneous (just in the skin) mastocytosis start in childhood and will go away as a person gets older. Sometimes the spots may stay but the reactions from them (itching or hives when the spots are irritated) fade over time.
Systemic mastocytosis (throughout the body and bone marrow) is much rarer, but usually will not go away. See as specialist in mastocytosis for more information.
