Good day. I registered here just to ask about my skin.

First, there are flat brown spot on my back, which started to spread on shoulders, and now my uppermost arms and upper chest. It's not itchy.
It has been around two weeks since it started spreading. I'm currently 16 years old.

It kinda worries me cause it looks weird, visually.
And it may be some disease. Or just my clothes, body wash, soap, detergent, my bed or something that I am eating.


Hope you guys can help. Thanks.

  • does anyone know what this is. I have the same thing on my back,stomach,upper arms and thighs. The doctors told me it was yeast but the drugs they gave me didnt do a thing. It would be nice if someone could figure it out.

  • Dont know what it is but if your trying to get rid of it use selsun blue (moisturizing) & rub it all over your spots. Leave it on all night & wash it off by the next day. Repeat the same thing til the spots goes away.

  • I have no idea about these spots. Consult a good dermatologist as soon as possible.
