If these spots are painful at all (burning), you need to get to a doctor to have them take a look at it.  It's important to see a doctor because they can gather your health history (for example do you smoke, take medications, etc), and the in person exam is very important for an accurate diagnosis with skin conditions.

How are you doing?  Were you able to get to the doctor at all?
