Hello, Without examination it is very difficult to confirm a diagnosis, but it can be solar keratosis(small rough or scaly areas of skin due to damage from sun exposure), Dermatosis papulosa nigra(firm, smooth, raised, dark brown to black bumps occur on the face and upper trunk; usually runs in families) , seborrheis keratosis(small lumps due to a thickening of an area of the top skin layer) , syringoma(bumps caused due to overgrowth of cells), acanthosis nigricans, seborrheic keratosis, solar lentigo or tinea versicolor. I sincerely advise you consult a dermatologist and get the diagnosis confirmed. Mode of treatment for all is entirely different. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.

I have brown patches all over my neck, on the body some are red and then getting darker. They are not itchy, but I still want to get rid of them with diet. Do you know one?
