Hi, I am 18 year old female. About two weeks ago I noticed that I had a rather large brown blotch on the top of hand toward my thumb area. The blotch looked a bruise so I thought nothing by it. It has gotten itchy and it is has turned into a more dark brown. I thought it could be a big sun spots but I have been told that those usually turn lighter not darker. Please can somebody tell me what could possibly be going on? Should I go to the doctor? Thanks
