Hi Dede,

Welcome to HCM.
Brown spots may be petechial haemorrhages. It is better to consult a physician and get the blood tests done to rule out any major problem.
These spots could be due to capillary leaks. Leaks could be due to bleding disorder, so bleeding time and clotting time will have to be checked.
Wishing him all the best.
