Sudden onset of itchy dark patch on the arms. How can I get rid of it?

hi, i have this dark patch on the top of my left arm , it looks like a bruise but it s not. I only noticed it when my husband pointed it out to me a few months ago, but i have never really paid much attention. It seems to itch now and is about 2inches wide. i also seem to have it on my right upper arm, but it s alot smaller.
