I get these when I tan during summer. It is caused when you are subjected to a lot of sunlight. A special fungus then grows on your skin, causing the loss of pigment. My dermatologist gave me Spectazole Cream (Econazole Nitrate 1%). I put it on for a month, and they went away and never came back. But, the doctor warned that they will come back in summer again, so just save the cream. You need a perscription for this. There is no way to prevent them, except wear a shirt and don't go outside, which is unlikely. So, just ask for this cream.  Big thumbs up

You should probably see a dermatologist, not just your family or primary physician. It's probably sun-related, but you want to have the spots checked out by a doctor who specializes in skin.

Hmm... I have these spots on my abs and under my right knee, they don't show up in winter but when I get a tan in summer there's a sort of white patch (they're also kinda rough to the touch if you get what I mean). My dad, a pathologist, tells me there's nothing wrong/dangerous about them and nothing I can do either. Basically I don't care because I'm not perfect anyway, I do have scars which show up in summer when I'm tanned so I cannot be bothered about a few white spots.

Red: yes I did a doctor who specializes in skin, it was a little while back and now we more "modern". They don't bother me, its just people ask so many dam questions...
