Why Do I Have White Spots On My Skin?

There are a variety of reasons for white spots on skin.  They could be any of these:

  • tinea versicolor (fungus)
  • guttate hypomelanosis (sunspots)
  • pityriasis alba (vestige from eczema)
  • vitiligo

White spots on the skin are the absence of melanin – the pigment that colors the skin. Melanin colors the hair and eyes too. Sometimes these white skin spots cover a large area or can be small specks.  The spots that are depigmented can be any of the above skin conditions.

Melanin not only colors hair, skin, and eyes, it protects your skin from harmful sun rays.  Since the melanin is absent, these white skin patches will be more sensitive to the sun and prone to sunburn. If you will be exposed to the sun, consider using sunscreen to protect these sun-sensitive areas of skin. Whether you are standing outside waiting for the bus or at a backyard barbecue, these are all times outdoors and sunscreen should be used.

A dermatologist can diagnose your specific skin condition with the aid of a Wood’s lamp. With vitiligo, a Wood’s light makes the white spots fluoresce bright white, making them clearly visible in contrast to the normal skin color, even if the normal skin is very pale.  Occasionally a biopsy is needed.

Some people choose to cover up their white skin spots with camouflage cosmetics. Some people are at ease with their unevenly colored skin. While others flaunt their white spots.  Whether you choose to conceal the white patches on your skin, reveal them, show them off is up to you.

A Nashville Mom’s Vitiligo Story

Meet Scarlet. Her son Leo was diagnosed with vitiligo at age three.  And so began her quest to find something to help his skin condition.
Family Focus Blog Leo Likes Recouleur for His Vitiligo
Her research lead her to a vitiligo sufferer who suggested Recouleur® vitamins.  She loves that Leo is getting the nutrition he needs to support his body’s pigmentation process.

I Was Skeptical

I was skeptical and was taking 15 different supplements and because there were so many I was not as religious in taking, switching to the Recouleur 1 a day with a concentrated formula where you take 1 pill is actually so much better since it’s easier to be consistent! I did see total recoloring of a large spot on my arm and on my cheek. My hands stopped spreading although they haven’t filled in I am praying and hoping for a miracle with this treatment still to come. You can’t hurt by trying it.

I’ve taken all kinds of supplements over the years as well as my mother who has bad vitiligo and Recouleur® has been the GShaffer-before-after-vitiligo-photoonly thing that’s worked on me in combination with clobetasol.

What an awesome company!

I had more vitiligo go away but unfortunately, I didn’t take any before pictures of a quarter-sized one on my cheek and a silver dollar sized one on my arm totally vanished! My sister took it for 1 month an had only 1 on her leg about the size of a silver dollar and it also went away, she is 24 im 28. You’re all the best!
