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.

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

Got a fairly severe sunburn, it started to peel & I peeled some skin prematurely. Now I have tiny, white spots covering my chest. Are these permanent?

No if care immediat: Sunburns are different types and not all people equal. The darker the skin type 6 are less prone and type one with least melanin pigment get the worst. Peeling is a natural hpmeostasis mechanics trying to get rid of dead epithelial cells and build new. I recommend keep area covered with sterile gauze and use topical antibiotics and silvadene (silver sulfadiazine) cream. You may need systemic antibiotics. See MD. Now ...Read more

I have little white spots on my tonsils. Is it mucus? I have a possible chest cold like my mom. I have been coughing for about two weeks.

You may have tonsillitis or even strep throat. You need to see your doctor for diagnosis and treatment. You need a physical exam and possibly a throat culture. Good luck! ...Read more

Two year old has pimple like bumps on chin and looks like a light rash on chest and back. No fever, no symptoms. What could it be?

Rash: Difficult to know without seeing it. 1 possibility is that it may be staph or strep on his chin, called impetigo with a more generalized rash that often accompanies it. If this is the case he requires antibiotics to protect particularly his kidneys. Have the rash examined and get a confirmed diagnosis to help with his care. All the best in getting this sorted out. ...Read more

Strep test was negative but lung x-ray showed bronchitis. Is that what's causing my throat to be sore with white spots? Dr prescribed augmentin

Maybe: If the spots were there before the augmentin, then very likely. If they appeared after starting the antibiotic, it may be oral thrush. If you are prone to vaginal yeast infections after taking antibiotics, then thrush is even more likely. If your throat does not get better by the time you finish the augmentin, I would recommend you go back to see your Dr. ...Read more
