Hi

I am an Indian woman and have recently noticed that I am developing white spots on my skin. Can you please let me know what could be causing this.

Sheena, it might just be a yeast infection called tinea versicolor, but there is also a small chance of it being due to tinea alba or even vitiligo. The problem is that I can’t differentiate between them from this side of the screen, so the best would be to see your doctor and have it sorted out. Good luck.
