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

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.
