Brown spots in my pubic area

I ve recently noticed (maybe the last month or so) that there are some brown spots (look like little bithmarks) on both sides of my pubic area. They were never there and I would like to know what they could be. Thanks.

Hello.
Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
Around the pubic area a relatively darker pigmentation is seen. The darker birth spots are also very common in that area . No cream or lotion can help to lighten these marks. If you are still conscious about these marks then use make up to hide them.

Hello, I have a few brown spots around my pubic area. In one area of the brown spot, it sometimes itches badly but rarely. They kind of look like birthmarks but I feel they are something different. I also have brown spotting on both sides of my legs right where the scrotum and the legs rub.
