For a few years I have had dark spots on my legs. However, these are only on the lower leg, and to the outer side(not the inner side- that is clear, natural skin), and only on the lower half of the leg(where it was regularly exposed to the sun as a result of my school uniform.) I have researched sun spots and I know that it has nothing to do with that.

I have small itchy spots on my lower legs primarily that appear suddenly at anytime of the day. They start out as small (1/8 inch or less) red spots, become itchy, and when I scratch, they become larger in diameter (1/4 to 1/2 inch)and raised. They do not bleed when I scratch, but clear fluid will come out of them. After a few days, they stop itching and will go away except for a scar left from scratching. It is not a rash. They don't appear as a series, but indiviudally.

One such example is a condition known as tinea versicolor, a superficial yeast infection that produces white spots on the skin that are difficult to remove. Some of the perceived causes are emotional stress, hereditary factors, worms, sunburns and physical illness. This skin condition can be aggravated due to diseases like hyperthyroidism, diabetes mellitus, pernicious anemia and Addison's disease. You should talk to your doctor and rule out the above causes.

I just had another pcr test-waiting on results. I had a quick question. Some spots have appeared on my legs(inner left calf and inner left thigh) My boyfriend brushes them off as bruises but they aren't. I have had them for about 5ish months. At first it was just the area on my calf but then they showed up on my thigh. They aren't yellow specifically but more yellow than any other color..? Could this be a sign of an active infection? (Jaundice?

I have had small white spots on my legs since I was a teenager, I have been to 3 dermatologist and they all told me that my skin will no longer make pigment in those areas and that there is nothing they can do for me, other than a skin gragh, and even that is not 100% effective. I am now 30 and it is starting to spread to my upper thighs, and back. I got a idea to go and get skin colored tatoos to cover them up. I am going tonight, I will keep everyone updated on how it looks.
