Hi, Thanks for posting your query

The dark spots are probably post inflamatory hyperpigmentation due to boils andbumps on chest and stomach after shaving

To treat the same you may do the following under a dermatologist prescription,

Sittings of TCA or glycolic peels alternating with microdermabrasion
Depigmenting creams like hydroquinone2% or kojic cream twice a day
Oral Vit C, E and betacarotene ( prevents free radical damage)

Since the spots are because of shaving , I suggest you:
To get in touch with an endocrinologist for hormonal work up and appropriate management
You may think of Permanent hair reduction with lasers if hormonal profile is normal

Hope this helps you
