Elbow discolored. Dark spot on lower abdomen. No pain or burn. It is?

Hello, yesterday I noticed a discoloration on my body, specifically my elbow . I noticed it while getting ready for a shower. There is no pain, the skin is a little dry, and it is noticeably darker than my right elbow. Also a Dark spot appeared on my lower abdomen on the lower left side about 3 weeks ago, right around the last rib, I felt no pain, and do not recall any bruising to cause either of these discoloration, there is no itching, or burning or anything. What may cause these effects on the body?

hi there. Many skin conditions may cause such marks from an infection that is fungal to a condition called FDE (fixed drug eruption) that may arise from an allergy to some medication or food colouring/additives or some sort of contact dermatitis. It has to be looked at by a qualified dermatologist. A wood's light examination may be useful. All the best & good luck
