Dark skin patches on the shoulders. What is the reason and remedy?

Hello Doctor, My name is James. I have small dark patches extending from my shoulder to my triceps. I think I first noticed it as a kid (11-12 years old). I am 28 now. I have ignored it until now. But now I feel it is increasing. I am not very sure of that though. Can you guide me as to what it could be and what remedies would you suggest. Thank you !!!
