Thanks for writing to us.
Dark spots are mostly due to hyperpigmentation- overactivity of the melanocytes. Leprosy is associated with hypopigmented patches with a sensory loss. Yours are most probably due to a pigmentation problem that can be effectively treated with the laser therapy.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
