Have approx 2cm, irregular skin spots for over a year. Not itchy, look a tad dry and dark but feel normal. Mostly chest and back. Increased to 11 over period.
If the lesions are scaly they could be due to dryness.Such lesions can be seen due to allergic dermatitis.Do identify the allergen causing it and avoiding such items can prevent new lesions.Apply calamine lotion for the existing lesions.
Thanks for the query.
The spots are most likely insect bites. However, write back with answers to the following:-

Take Tab Ceterizine 10mg thrice daily for 5-7 days; apply Lactocalamine lotion.
