Pediatrician 's  Response
Hi ,
Thanks for placing your query through HCM.
I can appreciate your concerns
With the limited description , it is almost impossible to think of any particular explanation for her brown spots.
We need to know--
How many spots ?
Texture (feels rough or smooth),
Uniform colour ?
Any itching or pain or burning ?
Any recent illness or drug intake?

We can discuss further if you send a colour picture of same.
Best regards.
