Hi, dear
I have gone through your question. I can understand your concern.
As such thalassemia minor patients are asymptomatic or symptoms of mild anemia only. Your dark patches mostly have no relation with thalassemia minor. Please send me pictures and history so that I can help you further to find the cause.
Hope I have answered your question, if you have doubt then I will be happy to answer. Thanks for using health care magic. Wish you a very good health.
