Tinea Versicolor: Tinea versicolor is a common yeast infection of the skin that often affects adolescents and young adults. The term versicolor refers to the fact that it causes the affected skin to change color and become either lighter or darker than surrounding skin. The only way to tell for sure is to scrape the skin and look for hyphae under the microscope.

Need to Visualize: Have a healthcare personnel look at the lesions to determine the nature of it. Your primary care provider or GYN doctor will be of great help. Be sure to get STD screening while there.

Hi I have really itchy white spots on my thighs with lots of bruising around them?! Any ideas?

Need more info: It's hard to diagnose skin lesions without seeing them. Most skin lesions that itch are caused by allergies and/or insect bites. My best advice is to make an appointment with your family physician and have him/her examine you.

Hi there, I went to Hawaii and had a bad burn on my thigh. It is painful a week later and has a few white spots. There's one red little bump/blister.

Below: Keep the area in question moisturized and clean. Do not "pop" the blister, let it resolve by itself When the blister does leak fluid, then remove the skin on top, and clean the area. Then apply bacitracin over the area.

I started having white spots on my triceps and thigh region after consuming some bodybuilding supplements. One of them is a pre workout and creatine supplement. Is there any way to reduce or remove those white spots? It has been there for some time.

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.

Hard to say: Without seeing the "white spots" you are talking about. For all you know it could just be normal physiologic changes in the skin. But, if you are concerned, please consult with your physician.

I have white spots on my leg, arm, and hand. Is it possible to be sun damage? Should I be worried about ir?

Tinea versicolor: It's possibly tinea versicolor. It's caused by a fungus, which blocks the sunlight from activating the melanocytes (pigment cells) in your skin. With sun exposure, the skin around it tans but the fungal area stays white. You'll need a doctor's examination for a diagnosis. Http://www. Aad.

Numbness in left hand, bottom part of arm, bottom part of leg and left side of face. Mri showed white spots on brain, LP was negative for ms.

MS or not MS?: Iit is hard to find the cause of a symptom of tingling. The changes on your MRI could be related to your symptoms. When the LP is negative, it does not mean you do not have MS, but one must consider other causes, such as a virus of some kind, or other medical illnesses. It may help you to have some symptomatic treatment of your symptoms, maybe a nerve conduction study and a follow up mri.

Healing folliculitis: Folliculitis is an infection in hair follicle. It commonly occurs on areas where friction occurs. It usually starts as little red spots, which may itch or burn. These develop into pustules (lesions containing a tiny amount of pus). These pustules are often healed spontaneously by your body and appear as yellow or white scabs during the healing process. Wash gently with antibiotic soap and water.

My fiancé has a rash like spot on his inner thigh, has an odor&yellowish discharge. Washed before we had sex. Could that cause me to have UTI symptoms?

Doubt. But,: You are describing an infection possibly an abscess. He needs treated. We all have bacteria on our skin with no infection developing. If bacteria is pushed under skin like in case of scratch, infection happens. Urine infection is common from sex unless strict hygiene is followed. There is a bacteria called mrsa, however, that have higher spread rate among couples. He needs to be checked for this.
