I have white patches on both of my arms. They sometimes itch when i sweat and my doc told me that it's tinea veriscolor. Could it be anything else?

In brief: Pityriasis alba

If treatment for tinea versicolor fails, wait a few weeks, then see a dermatologist.
Be prepared to relate the exact treatment used. Anything on back?
