I have this brownish color on my chest for about seven years, im 17 now. It's around my chest and is on my arm. I can noticed that it is spreading a little on my arm. I tried fade creams for a little but they don't seemed to be working. I would like to know is this a skin fungus, rash, hyperpiemenation, or any other skin problem. I put some links of it below to help you out. I f you know what it is, i would like to know some good treatment. Thanks for reading this.
Sorry, but I cannot view your pictures. Adolescent boys sometimes get a brown patch on the chest called a Becker's nevus. It is benign but can't really be treated. To be diagnosed, you will need to ask a doctor in person. If your regular doctor doesn't know, he or she can refer you to a skin specialist.
