Skin splotches.
I have noticed some splotches on my lower waist that have no other effects other than being random splotches. They don't itch or have any abnormal feeling and are not raised at all.

I am including this photo of the splotches as well.

Hello,
For these splotches the possibility of pityriasis rosea needs to be ruled out.

Pityriasis rosea is a common human skin disease which presents as numerous patches of pink or red oval rash. The rash may be accompanied by low-grade headache, fever, nausea and fatigue and itching. Topical and oral steroids are needed. Water, sweat, and soap may cause irritation and should be avoided in the disease. Topical zinc oxide and calamine lotion are useful for pruritus.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
