Strange white spots on skin?

Posted by griff44 @griff44, Aug 25, 2017

Over the last few months, dry spots on my stomach, leg, and face have appeared. I have naturally dry skin so I tried using a moisturizer. After a few days these spots turn white and almost look like scars. I thought noting of it because it was just on my leg and one on my chin. Now I have about 6 spots on my stomach. Is anyone else having this issue? Any tips or any insight would be great.
Thanks in advance.

@griff44, could you please share a few more details about yourself? Have you consulted a dermatologist? Are you on any medications that could possibly cause these spots too? We look forward to getting to know you.

Is it vitiligo? I just presented with a patch on my right elbow . . . : (
