Brief Answer:
Viral warts

Detailed Answer:
Hello. thank you.

I am Dr. kakkar (Dermatologist and Venerelogist). I have noted your concern and I have viewed the image.
I can see skin colored, rough appearing, raised skin lesions. It seems like a wart to me. Warts are an infection caused by Human Papillma Virus (HPV). It has to be removed with either Electrosurgery or Radiofrequency cautery. I suggest that you visit a dermatologist in your region for the needful.

Brief Answer:
Dysplastic nevi

Detailed Answer:
Thank you. I have viewed the images.

I think they are clinically dysplastic nevi. Asymmetric nevi with irregular/ ill defined margins and with varying shades (specks) of brown. I suggest a dermoscopic examination. Do you have other such nevi? or are the other nevi unlike these?

Ok.

If they look different from your other typical moles then that is all the more reason that you should get them evaluated.
