I have similar dark spots on my knee and forward but they are very tiny and unnoticeable and they don t itch me often.

Hello dear,
thanks for the query.
It looks like you are suffering from a itchy condition of skin called as lichen planus.
It is a very chronic condition.
Although permanent cure is not possible but the symptoms can be controlled by using topical steroids.
Please meet a dermatologist and get a prescription.
Thank you

Speak with an allergist or immunologist to determine whether you are suffering from skin allergy.
