Dark facial sploges


I know in the great scheme of things this is a minor problem but … I have been taking Tamoxifen for almost five years and over the last 2 or 3 I have noticed dark and unsightly spots and sploges over my face which, has got progressively worse over time.  Summer makes it ten times worse and am dreading the sun. It makes my complection look grubby and I was wondering if anyone has the same side effect from (I am assuming it is a side effect!) Tamoxifen.  And if so, what, if anything, have you used to either GET RID or soften the effects?
