Hi Cindy, thank you for the question and my apologies for the delay with my response but I have just returned from my London practice.

Your best approach would be to consult a dermatologist who can determine the cause of the white ‘spots’ and prescribe the appropriate treatment. One of the commonest reasons for the appearance of white patches on the skin is a fungal infection that can be successfully treated with a course of tablets, anti-fungal creams and a shampoo.
