How can i get rid from spots on skins ?

My daughter is 15 years old and she has been seeing some spots on her back, she s had these spots for over a year, first we taught her skin was dry and she needed to moisturize but she has just informed me the spots are spreading to her chest area. These spots do not hurt but their make the skin dry, flaky and discolored. She does not spend a lot of time in the sun and the area is usually covered. What s causing these spots? and what can she do to get her skin back to normal? Thanks Laurainer

Thanks for the query
It is hard for me to diagnose without actually seeing the spots. From what u r saying it sounds like dermatitis. For now you can ask her to take levocet 10mg in the night and a steroidal local applicant twice daily.
