First of all,scrubbing whatever this is on your skin will only irritate it.You need to go to a dermatologist to have this checked out.,not a G.P. they won't know what you have.Keep us posted!!!!! good luck!

It's probably just skin pigmentation. This won't come off. You'll need a bleaching cream to lighten it to match your skin.
