Brown blotchy skin. Don't want my girlfriend to see :(

Well, for the past couple years my skin has gotten kinda dry and blotchy. The skin looks kinda tan, and ever so slightly raised. not nasty though, just darker. It's not really itchy or anything either. It's on my stomack to my shoulders. It's mostly where I sweat alot though, like near my armpits and the insides of my elbows and upper arms. It basically covers the front of my body. It kinda makes my back look normal while my front looks tan.

I know I should have seen a dermatologist earlier, but my mom told me she had the same thing. Her's went away after taking protein pills for a while though, so that's what I recently started doing. It's gotten ever so slightly better. I've also been using aloe vera gel to moisten my skin.

I'm wondering what the heck it is. I'm going on a beach trip soon with my girlfriend and I wanna know if there's any way I can fix it. It's not disgusting, it just looks weird. Any suggestions?

Re: Brown blotchy skin. Don't want my girlfriend to see :(

sounds like it is fungus.light brown blotchy raised is embarassing. i had the same thing on the back of my neck and around my shoulder bones and upper's from sweating. i got it last summer. the fungus spreads pretty fast. i went to my regular family doctor and she prescribed a special antifungal bodywash for me. it took about 3 weeks to go away. hope this sounds like the same thing i had. i wouldn't take protein pills for that. good luck!!
