What are these flat spots on my abdomen?

I did some research under skin lesions and what best described mine was some sort of macule since this pigmentation is not raised at all, it's flat and is brown/red on my abdomen. I have two, one is about 3 inches below my belly button ( http://tinypic.com/r/2m3pg8x/7 )that I showed to a care physician when my doctor was absent, she said its nothing to worry about. Just recently I see another about half an inch above my belly button and half an inch to the right of it. ( http://tinypic.com/r/2wghc1e/7 ) I know the pictures aren't the best quality but gives you an idea of their size and relation to where they are on my body. Both are flat.

Unfortunately the pictures are not very clear but from the symptoms, pityriasis rosea needs to be ruled out. Pityriasis rosea is a common human skin disease which presents as numerous patches of pink or red oval rash. The rash may be accompanied by low-grade headache, fever, nausea and fatigue and sometimes by itching.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your dermatologist. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
