In brief: Tryptophan
If protein is not digested body does not get enough tryptophan - precursor for both serotonin and melanin.
Could be a sign of indigestion. Get tested with metametrix lab - urine organix profile - this can pinpoint the problem. Use aminosport by biotics or neuro-htp by biotics to improve this issue.

In brief: Get rechecked
White spots on the skin can be caused by a skin fungus, nutritional deficiencies, or other skin conditions.
It is first necessary to know what is causing the spots before we can select the correct treatment - your doctor can do a full exam and ask some detailed questions. If your family doctor or pediatrician still isn't sure, they may suggest you consult with a dermatologist (skin specialist).
