Brown and white spots on arm. Treatment?

Hi, my name is Neela, a month ago I noticed a tiny red spot appeared on my right arm later on it became bigger and turned into brown color slowly slowly it started to remove and on its place white skin showed out, now I ve these kind of brown and white spots at 2 places on my right arm. What kind of disease is it and is there any treatment for it? will it spread at other parts of body like face, hands or any other place?

hello neela
welcome to healthcare magic forum
thank you for your query
you have inflammatory skin lesion .
initially lesion are red than brown dark and finally turn into light or white color .
this is natural color change in healing process
you should apply good moisturizer lotion over the skin and hydrocortisone cream over the spot
it will take 1-2 wk to fade the lesion
if disease is active than you may feel the new lesion also
better to consult doctor if you not feel better
i hope i answered your question
