    I woke up one morning about a year ago with brown patches on my forearms, and they have never gone away. I read in Devin Starlanyl's book {now my bible] that it could be caused from wiping them accross your forhead to remove sweat. Which is possible because I like to play in the dirt in my garden, and my head sweats. Never did before I got FM. Its a little dryer than my already dry skin. Dosen't itch. Dr. looked at it and said it was age spots [that appeared over night?] There isn't any around my scalp, which would probably help my thinning hair, which I"m told is from Diabetes, I am also a diabetic.

    hi lilah, i to had brown patches, they formed after female
    surgery, you should get them checked out, but it sounds like a hormone thing, you should get yours checked. after taking injectable hormones(which is the cleanest for your body) they went away. hope this helps. kim
