Fungal...err..melasma

I first saw my doctor for a ''rash'' on my forearm about two years ago. He prescribed Lamisil. That did nothing. My doctor retired so I saw a different one and she said nothing stands out to her and to use Cortizone if it itched [it doesn't itch]. I just went in for a physical with a different doctor. I told her about it and she said the same thing, just a little hyperpigmentation, didn't prescribe anything. I did a little research and am finding things about melasma which I'm beginning to think maybe this is what I have. But now I'm seeing stuff about melasma caused by fungus...hmmm. Does anyone have any recommendations for some natural cures? The doctors don't seem to care.

Neither is true. Possibly lentigo. Do consult your doc. ok?
