My son has been getting new, teeny tiny dark spots on his skin, spread over his body, at a rate of about one every two months for about half a year. He has three or four of them at this point. One on the side of his face, one on his thigh, etc. I'm probably going to take him to the doctor for them, anyway, but any thoughts as to what they could be would help.
He also has a somewhat larger dark spot under his hair, which I think is also new this year. That one's asymmetrical, so I certainly think it needs checking out.
Thanks for any thoughts. I'd love to have some idea what could be going on.
