Brown spots on skin

My Maltese has recently developed brown spots on his skin. I am not sure what caused this, but recently he had a problem with his liver and he has been on medication for about a month. I have noticed some of these spots before on his skin, especially when we give him a bath. However, more seem to have appeared now. Also, he was extremely matted up, so the groomer basically shaved him. Some of the hair that had fallen out on its own has still not grown back (it's been about 6 weeks). How long does it take for hair to grow back that has fallen out (especially on his stomach/chest area)?

P.S. I considered asking the vet, but he always seems to perscribe 100 different medicines so I thought maybe someone else had some experience.
