    Does anyone have these?

    about 5 years ago I developed mocha-like blotches on my face - right above my lip. I thought it might be from the birth control I was on but I only took it a short time and the blotches remained.

    I now have a few more (around my cheeks).

    What are these? Is there any way to get rid of them?

    I've asked docs but they never pay much attention to it.

    Please give me ANY input you might have. I have found that your input helps me figur things out sooo much faster.

    Thank you!

    I have the same thing going on, and there is no explanation!

    The only thing I can think of is that I was out in the sun every day, for 8 years without sunblock. (That was before we were told to use sunscreen).

    I know it bugs me, but no one else seems to even notice.

    It could be related to sun exposure but I've never been one to sun bathe. It also happened over night and never went away.

    I would love to cover it up but that doesn't work too well. It kind of looks like a mustache (not the look I'm going for - LOL!)

    I just wish I could figure out what it is an make it go away.
