I developed cafe au lait like spots when I was a teenager, they appeared all over my neck, back, and some on my chest. For a while they were severe, but then they went away most of them on my chest I still have some. They do not itch or anything. Occasionally they come back, and have been creeping up higher on my neck. I read that the appearance of cafe au lait spots when there are more than a certain number and are bigger than 5mm is usually a sign of something being quite wrong like Neurofibramotosis? Does anyone know about these spots? Are they pretty clearly indicative of a problem if there a lot of large ones? I have some other probs I mentioned in another post you can refer too but I don't have deformities, which seems to occur in a lot of conditions related to these spots at least not outward deformity my organs are a bit off as I said. Could these spots be nothing? Maybe the key to getting a diagnosis?
