Difficult to advise without any photos.  There are a variety of options to treat hyperpigmentation which include topical medicated creams, lightening creams, lasers, and chemical peels. An evaluation would be required to determine the best treatment for your particular brown spots and skin type.

It is hard to give you a treatment recommendation. Topicals such as hydroquinone and Retin A will help. Lasers and peels could help as well.
