Dark Blotchy Skin on my Dog's Underside

Hello,

I have a 4 year old gray/black cairn terrier who has a history of allergies.  She has been seen regularly by our vet and is currently on a regimen of prednisone.  She takes one pill a day to control itching.  During the summer months, she also receives injections as needed as this time of year is worse for her allergies.  She has recently developed dark (not quite black) blotches on her chest, stomach, and inside her hind legs.  It does not seem to bother her, but I'm concerned because this condition does not look very healthy.  Any ideas about what this might be?  Thanks

James
