Got a bad sunburn months ago, it started to peel & I peeled it before it was ready. Now I have tiny, white spots covering my chest that won't go away.
Sun damage: Those "white spots" are likely areas of low pigmentation brought about by damage to the melanocytes (cells that make pigment) from the sunburn. It may take a year for them to kick back in and for your skin to look normal color again. In the meantime, make sure you use sunscreen daily and pamper your skin in next few months with moisturizers and avoidance of irritants. ...Read more
I had a sunburn and I started peeling it kind of stopped but some of my skin is tan and with white spots will it stay 4 ever?
Not likely: Sunburns with peeling often will leave the skin with pigment alterations. Unless the sunburn was very severe, it is unlikely that the pigment discrepancy will be permanent. However, to give your skin the best chance to return to normal, please wear spf 30+ sunscreen to the areas. Any sunlight exposure on skin with pigment alterations will make it more likely to be long lasting or permanent. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Hi. I've notice several white spots on my skin after sunbathing.I use sunscreen + had not had sunburn.Size varies they're symmetrical. No Itching?
See Your Doctor: Sun exposure causes production of the pigment Melanin which both darkens the skin (tanning) and absorbs harmful UV radiation. Certain medical conditions can impair the skin's ability to tan. Additionally minor skin trauma, rashes, infections, & more may cause temporary lack of tanning in affected areas with recovery over time. See your doctor for proper evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment. ...Read more

Skin changes: It sounds like you need to visit a dermatologist. There is a possibility that you may have Tinea versicolor, which is a non-contagious fungus which causes light or dark circles which may coalesce into larger areas.
