White Spots On Legs Circulation
Depends on the cause: Patients with venous circulation problems will get "spots", usually brownish discoloration or small veins, around the ankle. This comes from increased pressure in the veins that causes small amount s of blood to escape into the tissue. Arterial problems usually have non healing sores not spots on their foot or toes and occasionally blue or red discoloration when they hand their foot down
Depends: Most "vascular spots" are either spdier veins angiomas or hemosiderin deposits from venous insufficiency the first two can be treated with injections or laser the last is hard to treat and the goal is to prevent further extension Arterial disease can cause purple or bluish spots that are usually painful snd in the feet

Might need biopsy: Any unusual lesion on the skin that changes should be evaluated by a dermatologist or surgeon to make sure that they don't need to be biopsied or removed.
Must be seen: Your question cannot be evaluated without a photo or exam.
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.See 1 more doctor answer
I notice I have white spots on my legs. It seems there are more than previous year. Can this be vidaligo?
Yes: It could be vitiligo, but check with a dermatologist.
Uncertain: It may have something to do with circulation. You could check with the dermatologist and see if they can assess the correct diagnosis. Things like location of the spots, size of the spots, how many, are they warm or cold, are all important aspects.

Very: Very difficult to tell without a clinical examination so I would see a dermatologist. Perhaps they are seborrheic keratoses, specifically the "stucco keratoses" variant. See a picture of a pigmented version at the link below. I hope that helps.
Depends: Lots of things can cause white spots on your legs and it's impossible to say without seeing them. Valasone might help, just don't use it very long since it can cause thinning of the skin. You need a recheck in a couple of weeks if the spots don't inprove.
Tinea versicolor: A common skin fungus called tinea versicolor can prevent the sun from tanning those areas. If that is the case, treatment with a topical antifungal medication can eradicate the fungus. However, the whiteness will remain until your next sun exposure. It characteristically looks like white freckles.See 1 more doctor answer

Inadequate info: Your description is very vague. Skin diagnosis really needs a good examination. See your pcp or dermatologist.
