Splotchy skin

I have noticed that my stomach looks splotchy -- with some lighter pigmentation and some darker pigmentation.  It is most noticeable when I am not tan.  I got a bad sunburn about 3 or 4 years ago (with small blisters).  Is this what caused the splotchiness?  Is there anything I can do to improve the splotchiness?  Most importantly, can I still go out in the sun or should I avoid it?  

Thank you for your help!

wow..I have the exact same problem but I think it's because I had the chicken pox when I was little. It's less noticeable when I'm darker too. I've found that making sure my skin is moisturized helps to even it out a lot. Jojoba oil is the best, but it's a little on the expensive side. When you do go out in the sun wear sunscreen always, that much I do know because it ages as well as damage your skin cells.
