You can if you use one of out premium (phone/skype) services as we are not allowed to share our personal email ids otherwise. If it is completely flat, I am afraid there is not a lot one can do about it. From what you say, it probably started as a blocked gland (milia) and subsequently healed to leave a white spot. Nothing serious or worrying at all. If you want to get rid of it, you have two options.

1. Get it cut out (would be a very simple procedure done under local anesthetic)

2. See a professional tattoo artist and get a skin coloured tattoo on the white spot.

Hope this helps. Do keep me posted & get back if you have any further questions or feel that I have missed out anything. I will be here to provide ongoing advice as necessary. Best wishes.
