I am 25 years of age, and i have always had a problem with dark spots all over my body, especially on my legs, which is caused by mosquito or flea bites or anything im allergic to.. as soon as something bites me, it leaves a mark/dark spot behind... this has really brought down my self-esteem, as i never wear skirts or shorts because of the ugly marks...and i dread going to the beach... i have tried every ointment, bio-oils, and recommended products like Environ, etc, but nothing has really worked... is there any treatment similar to laser that could remove or lighten these dark spots from my legs?? im really desperate..... :-(

Hallo Mara
The best would be to see a dermatologist as some skin lightener creams containing hydroquinone can actually cause more dark spots. Use a high factor sunscreen over bitmarks if you go into the sun.
