Dear Shanaaz, any changes in or on one's body is something that one should pay attention to. Skin problems can be very difficult to diagnose. It is a very specialised field which is dealt with by specially trained doctors (dermatologists). You do not provide any information regarding age, sun exposure, lifestyle, etc. I would suggest that you make an appointment with your doctor with a request that you be referred to a dermatologist. (MCH).

The information provided does not constitute a diagnosis of your condition. You should consult a medical practitioner or other appropriate health care professional for a physical exmanication, diagnosis and formal advice.
