I am getting weird spots and splotches on my skin, particularly in places where there is friction (bra line, panty line, etc...). The spots start out red, then fade to brown in a few days. Heat and sweat seem to make them worse, and they get bigger. It's gotten so bad under my bra line that almost all of the skin there is discolored a light coffee-colored brown I scheduled an appt with a dematologist but they couldn't get me in until mid Sept My biggest concern about "The Spots" is that my husband has had them for a long time, ever since I've known him. I didn't have them before and just started getting them this year. Are they contagious or something??? His also show up in high-friction areas, particularly along his waist where his pants sit. I've scoured the internet and still can't find out what this is. Anyone have any clues???
