Dear Ms Megha
Pigmentation at site mentioned like back and forearms result from excessive sun exposure . Also many a times in order to clear the pigmentation at these sites , people use methods like excessive rubbing with brushes, pumic stone etc. Such procedures might increase the pigmentation and result in a condition called- Macular Amylodosis.
In order to get rid of these pigmentations you need to take a treatment from a qualified dermatologist. Apart from creams , he can avice you some body peels to get rid of the pigmentations at a faster pace. Also sun avoidence and protection is a must.

happy healing

Welcome to Healthcare Magic
The sites you mentioned are the common sites for pigmentation due to certain hormone disorders like Addison's disease. Kindly get examined by your Dermatologist to rule out this condition. There are many skin whitening creams containing hydroquinone which is an excellent skin bleaching agent.
