Brown spots on abdomen, back, flaky, recurring, spreading to buttocks. Causes?

HI, I am a 23 year old female and I have these light brown spots on my lower abdomen and lower back. They are small round spots that are flaky. They go away on their own sometimes but come back soon enough. They have become more widespread on my lower back and buttocks area. It s not painful or itchy but just appearance worries me and what the cause may be.

Hi there,
Welcome to HCM.
I am suspecting miliaria that is sweat rashes which usually occurs in these regions due to tight clothing causing increased sweat. I suggest you keep these areas clean and dry and avoid tight clothes. Many body powders are available in the market to decrease these. If this application does not reduce them I suggest you get them examined by a dermatologist. Thanks.
