Question
Posted by: Ansie | 2009/01/15

Subject: White marks

Ek is 49 jaar oud en het wit merke aan my keel net onder my kakebeen. Eenkeer ' n jaar kry ek ' n hitte uitslag onder op hiedie gedeelte en bors wanneer dit uitermatig baie warm is. Dit lyk soos karbonkels maar verdwyn weer na twee weke vir die res van die jaar. Ek het vroeë r jare cutaderm gebruik daarvoor maar nou is dit blykbaar van die mark af en die ander kortisoon salwe wat ' n mens oor die toonbanke koop werk nie so goed nie. Ek sit met hierdie lelike wit merke en sal dit graag weg wil hê . Wat kan ek gebruik daarvoor.

Hi Ansie, thank you for the question.
My suggestion is to consult a dermatologis
t who can examine the areas of concern and advise you on the appropriate treatment options.

From your description the breakout you are experiencing is not what is typically seen with a ‘heat rash’. Furthermore, the white areas could be hypopigmentation (loss of pigment) as a result of the inflammatory process. If this is the case one will have to consider using the excimer laser to try and re pigment the skin.

Following from the above I state again that your best option would be to consult a dermatologist.
