Avatar n tn Hi there, There are many skin conditions which causes the white spots on skin. Normally majority of the people get these white spots on any on one are more parts of the their skin but they do not know about the these spots. Some of the causes are as follows: 1. Vitiligo is and pigmentation disorder in which white spots appear on the skin. It is not contagious condition. But people with vitiligo has to suffer emotional distress to the their skin condition.
Avatar n tn Vitiligo is a pigmentation disorder in which melanocytes (the cells that make pigment) in the skin are destroyed. As a result, white patches appear on the skin in different parts of the body. Diagnosis can be confirmed by external examination, blood tests to check skin cell count for melanocytes and biopsy of the skin patches. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided.

768221 tn?1242995694 About a year ago, I started getting these white spots on my shoulders, then it spread to my back, neck, chest and stomach. They fade as my tan fades but as soon as I go out into the sun they come back. Sometimes they itch, sometimes they don't. Is there anything I can do to make them go away for good? I have never had this before.
Avatar n tn Do the spots look like dry skin or just like her skin has lost pigmentation? If the spots are not itchy, scaley, raised or anything like that your daughter could have vitiligo - which is a loss of or absence of pigmentation in the skin in different areas of the body. I have had vitiligo since I was about 4 or 5, starting on my legs and eventually spread to other parts of my body (I am 26 now). I would recommend seeing a doc to get it checked out.
Avatar m tn I have had white skin spots on my arms, back, and they have started going down my legs for about 6 months and sometimes they turn really pink and some times they tingle like your arm fell asleep when you touch the ones on my back, i have been told many different things by different doctors i just want to know what it is. I have been told they were sunspots, a fungus and dry skin but everything they told me to do i tried but it always comes back and worse than the time before.
1277837 tn?1271096366 just noticed a couple months ago white spots on my leg and now on my back and shoulders is there anything i can do to so these things dont get worse? and do they get worse then they already are?
Avatar n 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. Vitiligo could be an option and only a clinical examination would help in ruling out the possible causes. Some of the perceived causes are emotional stress, hereditary factors, worms, sunburns and physical illness.
Avatar n tn I have been to the doctors and he told me I have a skin fungus and to us Selson Shampoo, I have used the shampoo for a month every day, now I use it once a week for about 5-10 mins drying on my skin. The white spots don't seem to be going at all, now I have a bit of a tan they seem to be worse than ever. Do they ever go or even fade a little, I don't want to waste the doctors time again or do I need to get something else a little stronger. Please help.
Avatar m tn I do not know when I recieved it but a couple days ago I noticed I had painless tiny white spot near my pubic area but on penis one looked like a whitehead so I bust it and small white puss came out but it never hurts nor iches, I do shave occasionally so I don't know if that would be the problem. Any answers on what it may be?
Avatar n tn Okay so i have lots of little white spots all over my face, i have milk spots/milia on my face too, there around my eyes and some on my cheeks, so i put it up to them being that, until i decided to squeeze one and it was like a giant blackhead. But its a clear spot I have excema so i use really thick moisturiser for my dry skin. I've just burst about 3 of them on my face and its not nice. i don't have a problem with normal spots just these weird white ones, what are they ?
Avatar n tn I have these white spots that show up every summers on my back, chest and arms. how can i get rid of them. This discussion is related to <a href='http://www.medhelp.org/posts/show/239888'>white patches caused by the sun</a>.
Avatar n tn I have these white (lighter then my normal skin color) circle spots. They started on my shoulder and have spread to my upper back to my other shoulder and down both arms to about my elbows. I also have them on my upper abdomen area in the center, almost between my breasts. The spots start out as almost a complete circle until I have so many in one area they blend together. I am not really very itchy or a very little. I added a photo of my arm so you could see the spots.

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. 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.
Avatar n tn hello. I am 31, have white spots on my skin. they are scattered here and there on my arms. There is no other symptom. I dont go for tans, I stay out of the sun. What can this be?
Avatar m tn For this you should consult a dermatologist and get a KOH examination of the skin scrapings done to confirm the diagnosis. If the white spots are not easily scraped off then vitiligo should also be ruled out. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps.
