At first it was brown and patchy so I thought new skin would form but with same color. However it s different. There are several spots in my Arms that have different color than my skin.

Hello.You haven't mentioned what creams you have been applying.Dark skin could be a reaction to sunlight,especially if you have the habit of scrubbing during bath(WHICH YOU HAVE TO STOP OUTRIGHT).Over a period of time,with good sunscreens and depigmenting creams, the color tends to normalise.
