I have black spots and random scars on body

Hello, I am a 25 year old African American woman. I have noticed small black spots (possibly moles although they are not raised) that have appeared on my back , sides, and stomach during the past few months. I also have scars along my back, parts of my chest , and around my armpits. I am unsure of these causes as I usually do not feel any itching, or even notice any bumps that would usually occur prior to the scarring. Any idea what this could be? I have yet to receive medical care due to low income and no insurance, so this is the first time I am seeking any form of assistance.

Thanks for the query
It is difficult to diagnose this condition without seeing it and since u have multiple scars and pustules I suggest u see a dermatology immediately. For now u could use a levocet at night and see if it helps

the "scars" could be as simple as stretch marks you know? but as for the random black dots... you should get those checked on...
