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.

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.

You really should have a dermatologist take a direct look and give you a precise diagnosis. ...Read more

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 ...Read more

What are these white patchy spots. On my face (cheeks)? Doc said its pityrisias alba but not enough info about it. They have on/off worsening periods.

Poor pigmentation: It sounds like you are describing poor pigmentation which can be due to pityriasis alba or other causes. Poor pigmentation seems much worse with sun exposure because the rest of the skin tans/darkens in response to the sun and these areas don't. I would recommend an evaluation by a dermatologist (skin specialist) for another opinion or other treatment options. ...Read more

I have about two dozen white spots on my MRI my face and other parts of my skin are numb. I get these tremors that go from the back of my head down m?

UBOs (not UFOs): Until a diagnosis is given, white MRI spots are called ubos (unidentified bright objects) for which many different causes are known. You obviously have a brain disease (tremor & numbness). But the symptom combination is not diagnostic. At young age (20s-30s) ms (multiple sclerosis) is probably the commonest cause. See a neurologist & expect further testing. ...Read more
