Hi all,
I'm 35 and for as long as I can remember I've had white spots on my legs pretty much my entire life. I recently had a spray tan and afterwards noticed more itching on my legs than usual (I get eczema but not badly) and then there were heaps more white spots. I tried prevaryl which the chemist recommended as they thought it was a fungus, I've heard Selsun Blue works but I'm not sure of how to use it and was wondering if anyone else has had the same problem (in one spot only). It's not on my arms, stomach or anywhere else so rather bizarre.

  • I have white spots on my arms and the dermatologist said it was a fungus. I had to use the RX shampoo for like six weeks, every other day. You have to leave it on for ten minutes all over your body. You should have a dermatologist treat you to get a proper diagnosis.

  • Hi thanks for that. I'm going to keep trying the Selsun every 2nd night and see how I go. Unfortunately amongst my other medication and medical costs going to another specialist is way out of my budget.Thanks for the reply!
