I have white spots on my face what can I do about them?

May be eczema?: Whitish spots on the face may be eczema (pityriasis alba), especially if it dryish and itching a bit. A primary care doctor or a dermatologist (skin doctor) should look at it if it doesn't go away with simple treatment. Sometimes the rash can be ringworm (a fungus) or some other disorder. Simple treatment of a spot may mean trying over-the-counter Hydrocortisone 1% cream, plus moisturizers.

Possibly vitiligo: You should see a dermatologist to see if you truly have vitiligo. You may need to have some blood tests done since thyroid problems can also be associated with this. Although treatment can be difficult it is certainly worth a try.

Hypopigmentation: Comelite contains bleaching agents and certainly can cause lightening of the skin. If patchy lightening occurs, it is time to stop using that cream. Time may restore the lost pigmentation.

I have white spots on my face. And I think that is becoz of vitamin deficency wat should I do?

Depends: It is not likely that the spots are due to vitamin deficiency, and it would take an examination to ascertain the nature of the spots and their cause. However, there will be no harm in taking mufti-vitamin tablets available over the counter and see if that helps. If not, it would be time to see a doctor. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. Get HPV vaccine.

How do I get rid of white spots on my face?

How do I get rid of white spots on my face?

Depends...: ...On the cause. Pityriasis alba (literally "white spots") is common in children but unusual in adults. Tinea versicolor, a superficial yeast colonization, can occur on the face, and can create light spots. Vitiligo can occur on the face, but the patches are white, not merely lighter than surrounding skin. You really should have a dermatologist take a direct look and give you a precise diagnosis.

Why am I getting white spots on my face after being at a tanning salon?

Possible fungus: Certain fungal infections of the skin often appear as white patches, particularly after sun or tanning light exposure as the affected skin does not darken as much as the surrounding skin. Over the counter and prescription medications are available for these types of infections.

Milia: You can't prevent milia, but the good news is that milia usually disappear on their own in a few weeks. The best treatment for milia is usually none at all. Hope this helped :].

I have white spots on my face and arms that seem to spreading. They are noticeable since my skin is tanned. What can I do to avoid them?

I have white spots on my face and arms that seem to spreading. They are noticeable since my skin is tanned. What can I do to avoid them?

Skin color changes: Can come from several different reasons. One could be a skin fungus which can spread and look like whiter spots than your normal skin. One remedy may be showering with selsum blue shampoo and let it sit on your skin for a couple if minutes. Another possibility is vitiligo (the michael jackson skin disease). This is a skin disorder where you start to lose the pigment cells called melanocytes.

I have white spots on my face and groin area right after there was a rash do I have tinea vescolor and how can I get rid of the spots and rash?

Not tinea versicolor: Post-inflammatory pigment change. How long since rash. Any clue about the cause of the rash? How long did the rash persist? Was it treated? With what? How dark is your normal skin? When you see a skin DR be prepared to answer these questions. There are several possible discussions to have after an exam and more questions.

I have white. Spots on my face. I've seen many derm drs. They prescribed bleaching cream and antifungal, it doesn't go away. I've had it for years.

I have white. Spots on my face. I've seen many derm drs. They prescribed bleaching cream and antifungal, it doesn't go away. I've had it for years.

White spots are: Typically either pityriasis alba (a form of eczema) or vitiligo. I suggest biopsy if they aren't sure, bleaching creams don't help white spots but can be used to depigment skin when vitiligo severe, and antifungals probably won't help
