Tanning,whitish pink spot on outer thigh,pigmentation?

I started tanning little bit at a time .. Im all tan now but noticed I have a whiteish pink spot on my outer thigh that looks like it never tanned .. It s not raised or bumpy, just discolored like Im not tanning there.. when I look in the mirror from distance it looks pinkish compared to when I look up really close it looks white.. Just wondering if pigment is just discolored.

thanks for using healthcare magic
I would be pleased to answer your question .

The Pink spot may be the area where the skin is getting erythema due to excess heating of skin tissue or post inflammatory reaction .
you will need to apply a good moisturizer on that area twice a day and a little over the counter cortaid cream twice a day .

you can visit a local doctor , if it does not improve in 15 days .
