What Causes White Spots On Legs After Tanning?

i have white spots on my legs after tanning. They appeared after I got a ton of bug bites 2 years ago they have gotten smaller over the years and few more have appeared. Are these from the bites or because of tanning? Also when I spray tan the spots appear as well.

Hello,

Stop exposure to direct sunlight. Avoid using artificial tanning, it causes fungus and white spots. Whenever outdoors, use sunscreens. Prefer staying in the shade. You can use Betnovate C or N ointments to apply topically on the area affected when you are indoors. Topical application of hydrocortisone creams, gels are also effective. You are suggested to consult a dermatologist so that you can get dermabrasion done if required. Take a balanced diet, calcium, vitamin D and E.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
