i have this brownish area on my chesr and part of my arm

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.

Best.
