Grey spots on thigh, no pain. What could it be?

Hello, I just recently noticed grey spots appearing on my upper thigh and wrapping around my thigh to underneath my butt. They don t don t hurt and look almost like cheetah spots, although I do have a larger spot between my legs. But they re all a light grey color. I was just wondering what it could be and if it is serious or not?

You do not worry about the color change. It is is the normal sequel dark shade because of the activity of melanocytes(the color producing cells). This is known as Post inflammatory hyper pigmentation. It will be alright in next few weeks if you are not disturbing with any other cream.
Meet a proper dermatologist to get a good regimen to solve your problem.
