Hypopigmentation or white spots on skin can be caused by either a fungal infection or be a sign of autoimmune disease. It is important to visit a dermatologist for the correct diagnosis of these spots on arms.
There are different ways to get rid of white spots on skin.
It is always better to seek expert advice in order to differentiate between the serious and not so serious conditions. Good skin care will help reduce the occurrences of spots on skin.
Apple Cider Vinegar is mixed with onion juice and applied directly to the skin.
Aloe Vera juice or gel has long been known as a general healing agent for skin problems.
Lemon juice has been shown to help fade the appearance of spots.
Castor Oil has been shown to improve the appearance of spots.
