Hi, my name is Maria,i'm 22,from Bulgaria and i have the same problem i guess!
I have very white skin, and last year after some sunbathing i started to have white spots around some of the moles ( not big moles that are potentionaly dangerous for cancer but the small dark spots that here we also call moles)on my body- most of them really tiny, at places that are in contact with the sun. I went to some supposed to be good dermatologist - she said it is depigmentaion of the skin, some people have it, it's not a desease blabla, and no cure. I don't have a lot so i don't really care if they are there or not. The doctor also said they would be gone when my ten falls and i'm white again
and they did disappear. So now this year i want to have tan again and my mom made me go to a doctor again to ask if i can tan (the first one said u ccan but better not ect.). I went to another dermatologist and she said it was something like vitiligo but not exactly, that there is a medicine and it is expensive! So now i have no idea which one of the two is right, so i guess i'll go to another doctor for third opinion . I can't find anything online about white spots that appear around moles and in my case it's defenetely because of sunbathing.
They do not hurt , i'm just worried for the moles because on my back i have 3 spots that are big - 2-3 cm in diameter - and the larger the sopt becomes the smaller the mole gets. That's kind of weird !!!!
If anyone has heard of this before please answer - because my doctor hasn't for sure
