I am 24 years old. I have got some dark spots in some part of my skin like my knee and elbow. How can I solve this problem?Mar 10, 2013
Dr. Rola Al Dhaybi Dermatology
Having a darker skin in these areas is normal especially in people who are not fair skinned. No need to worry about it. In case the darkness exists over neck and other areas then this is a skin problem that should be treated.
