Hi,
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.
Regards.

My daughter(age 10) just mentioned she cannot see for a couple of seconds because of some white spots in her vision . I asked her further questions and she says she gets some pain in back of head towards the neck and the white spots are bright. It happens frequently like almost every day. She wears glasses for near signtedness (+1) and astigmatism(1.25). Her eye pressure is also borderline high despite adjusting it to corneal thickness (21-22). Both pain and white spots incident occur together and lasts only a couple of seconds. It sounds very scary. Should I rush her to an ophthalmologist or general practitioner? Or is it normal?

Hi I am 47 years old and have what I am now assuming is a nasal crease from having some pretty severe allergies for all of my adult life, my allergies are mostly under control but the crease is prominent now and white. I work outside and use sunscreen but still am exposed to tanning rays and while my skin darkens the line is more white than ever, not to mention I have Native American blood so it s very pronounced all year. Is there a cream that would diminish the crease? I m even open to plastic surgery procedures if that would be an option, last ditch effort kind of option. Any suggestions?
