Maybe not related?: Not sure why supplements would cause white spots on the skin. Rashes are hard to describe in words. Some whitish spots are dry, sensitive skin spots (a mild form of eczema). However, some fungal infections can look like whitish spots if the problem is mild (tinea versicolor causes such spots). A primary care doctor or dermatologist can look to see what might be the best treatment.
