 When I buy papayas in a fruit store, I have noticed recently that they develop ugly spots on the outside skin after I keep them to ripen for  3-4 days. Would  welcome solutions to get rid of this problem

That papaya is rotting. Next time you get a papaya, lay it underneath with newspaper or papers. Turn it 180 degree daily so it can ripen . Once you see it start to have an indent, I suggest start cutting and eating it before it rots. You can also put in refrigerator for another day or two.
