Help...unknown skin spots

I noticed some brownish spots on my lower legs (well, they first appeared as rashes and then faded to brown spots). I did see a doctor who said that it was probably some kind of infection, nothing to worry about. The spots never did just go away and now, 8 months later, the spots are still there and also appear now on my upper legs. Has anyone experienced anything similar? I don't know if I should see the doctor again, since the spots don't itch or bug me in any way other than appearance.

getting a bit worried,
mj

Re: Help...unknown skin spots

Hi there, urticaria pigmentosa(UP) came to my mind when you mentioned brownish spots. It can be a condition on its own or a symptom of mastocytosis. You might want to research more about urticaria pigmentosa and see if the rashes you got are similar to those of UP. Good luck!
