Hi there.. I'm new to this thread..but I was wondering if anyone knew anything about these patches I just noticed... I have small white patches all over my chest, arms, and back... they don't itch nor do they have any texture.. it's basically just a discoloration.. but i have no clue what it is or what causes it... could chlorine from an indoor pool be the cause? they're not really seeming to go away either... anyone have any idea?
