Hi,thanks for query.I do not see any reason for worry.They could be areas of hypo pigmentation in that part.Please keep a watch on them,if the increase in size or number,you need to see a dermatologist.Other wise do not worry.This can happen at times after minor trauma or otherwise.
wishing her good health.
