  • I have giant brown splotches on my cheeks too...started during pregnancy. Sadly, my youngest is 3YO and they still haven't gone away. I asked a dermatologist about it once and he said I could get something from him, but that was back when I was nursing and I couldn't use it while nursing.... I haven't been back. I also heard of an over the counter cream that works at fading freckles and brown spots...a friend recommended it, but I have never tried it so I don't know...and its pricey....its called Clear by Obagi.

  • I had my Son 3 1/2 years ago and I still have some large splotches on my cheeks too. A lot of the dark brown spots did fade by themselves, but I still have some big ones. I'll be watching to see if anyone here removed them successfully by an over the counter remedy.
