Customer Question

Some days ago I noticed some white sports in my nose and around it, it looks like fungus but I'm worried it could be vitiligo, I don't have family with that condition, it doesn't itch, hurt or have a different texture, and in the white mark it grows white hair.

Thanks for your answer, I also want to tell you that this anomaly might be because of using clearasil ultra but this is the link to the pictures

Thank you Robert for the photo sent.
Have you got a Wood's light examination done at the Doctors clinic as yet?
Since how long do you have this condition?
Did it start as one spot and then gradually increased to the present patches that you see now?
By using clearsil did you get any irritation on the area post which you got this white patches?
Can you confirm if you have more than one white hair growing from that area?

I haven't got woods light examination
I have it since 1 or 2 months ago
It started at the tip of my nose in which I used clearasil
Then continuing the use of this the other ones appeared
I can see like 4 white hairs on the patches
Additional to this in one of my nose holes white hairs grow and in the other one they're nkack.
At first when using clearasil I could see the tip of my nose peeling
