During my childhood I only had 3 to 4 moles over my face. But in the recent past years I have discovered some new moles over face and 2 on the neck, although there is no change in shape or size of any of the mole.

Within a few months even days I develop a ton of moles/freckles on my torso/legs/feet/neck. They are said to be normal. I'm 24 years old, I'm rarely in the sun, so I understand why. I wonder if it is the hormones, or diet. I also suffer from amenorrhea.
