    Freckles

    My 12 year old is very fair skin. He has sporadic beauty marks and I don’t really notice a ton of freckles on him. He did just recently start puberty and I’ve noticed a lot of leg hair developing. Blonde. My question is, I noticed on one knee and below on his shin, a large collection of freckles in a concentrated area. He doesn’t really have them on his other leg or this leg, just this area. They are not raised. They are light tan, not scabby, flush to the skin, and loo exactly like light freckles. He is worried about it. Is it common for a 12 year old to develop them at this age, and on the front of the leg in just one area?
