hellothanks for using justanswerwhite spots on the skin can be due to post inflammatory hypopigmentation , vitiligo , p versicolor.the treatments depends on the cause: you can apply cream called Melgain lotion on the white spots at night and expose to sunlight the next day in the morning for 10 minutes. the white spots will get a color over a period of time.If there is no improvement in the color , you can visit a dermatologist who would examine your skin under a Wood's lamp to come to a exact diagnosis. Do you accept my thoughts about your condition?
