Brown Spots Around My Belly Button

For a little over a year, there has been brown spots that keep showing up around my belly button. Originally, I would be able to get rid of them with a scrub or two in the shower, but now I'm not having such luck. All I can do now is make them "fade" a bit, but they're still fairly noticeable. What are these things and how do I get rid of them?

If you wear jeans, it could be a reaction to the nickel in the metal snap in the front of your jeans. If it's touching your skin you might be allergic.

The button isn't touching my skin directly. I sag my pants a bit so the button isn't near the region where all the spots show up.

Re: Brown Spots Around My Belly Button

i have this too... and it is definitely NOT from jean buttons. I dont wear jeans that go all the way to my stomach... lol

I think it may be ingrown hairs causing hyper-pigmentation. But thats just what I think... I'm no doctor. Is it slightly raised? Mine is. It doens't itch at all. LAtely I've been using a salicylic acid face wash (acne wash) to wash it. I've used a tweezer to actually pull out a very thin hair from the center. it was more than one. A dead, grey hair. It looks like it couldnt come out, died, and another own grew. gross eh?
