Thanks for writing to us.
Pigmentation usually happens due to overactivity of the melanocytes. The medicines you are taking are not likely to cause any such side effect. Normally these are benign pigmentation spots which do not need any treatment. You can discuss the treatment options with your dermatologist.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
