Brownish freckles on the buttocks. How can I get rid of them?

I am in my thirties, but I have brown "freckles" on my buttocks since I was a little girl. My buttocks have never been in direct sunlight without clothing. The freckles are closer together near my buttock cleft, which makes my butocks look darker than it really is. I am a light-skinned African American, and want to know what causes this and if there is anything I can do to get rid of this on my buttocks

Freckles are the hypermelanotic macules and patches.

They are due to increase of melanin pigments in skin.

Freckles may occur due to genetic tendency.

They may be increased due to sun exposure.

The condition is benign and does not require any treatment.

If cosmetically you concern, then freckles may be treated by hydrquinone, retnoids, Skin peeling,cryotherapy, laser therapy..etc

For perfect treatment ,you consult dermatologist... Ok
