Avatar n tn Are they small red spots, or does it look like blotchy red spots? Blotchy red spots are completely normal. People with lighter skin tone get them often, as when it's cold your blood vessels constrict taking blood away from the skin's surface. Then these red blotchy looking areas show. Do try to dress warm and keep yourself warm. These spots should not be constantly there for a long period of time. You want to be warm to have better circulation.

But I only had a pea size ammount available and didnt manage to put all over my face. I am also going thorugh a high ammount of stress. Can you help me out please?
Avatar f tn Hello, The treatment of white spots will depend on what sort of spots are they.If they are white spots due to dry skin then application of plenty of emollients like Vaseline and hypoallergenic moisurisers will make them go away.If the are white spots due to pityriasis alba(common hypopigmented dermatitis that occurs primarily in preadolescent children),then this is a self-limited disorder that usually resolves by adulthood.

Avatar n tn my daughters 5 years and 12 years are getting white spots on face. What do you suggest?
Avatar f tn Hello, These dark spots can be due to hyperpigmentation skin or malasma. Melasma is caused by hormonal changes, which stimulate a temporary increase in your body's production of melanin. People with darker complexions are more prone to this condition than people with lighter skin. Treatment options include treatment with vitamin C and hydrocortisone, peel with carbon dioxide snow and alexandrite and ND-Yag Q-Switched laser treatment preceded by a hydroquinone-based application.
Avatar n tn They are smooth and are not acne but don't itch or anything either. Could it be from my face wash or switching birth controls? Or maybe from dry winter skin? Help it seems to get worse every day!
Avatar f tn 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. You should talk to your doctor and rule out the above causes. Let us know if you need any other information. Regards.

Avatar n tn Hey doc, I've had white spots on my face for a few years now. They get "worse" when I tan because the spots do not tan along with the rest of my face so they become more noticeable. They are not bumps and feels like the rest of the skin on my face except it seems to be more dry. What do I do to cure this? Please help!! My dad who is a pediatrician has suggested that they may be caused by formerly having exema in those spots.
