itchy flaky white spots
I was wondering if anyone could help me out with this one...
recently I've noticed some scaling spots on my skin, few on the arms and few of smaller proportion on my face
they itch slightly, skin in the spot becomes dry and later it starts to flake, the center of the spot turns lighter as if loosing the tan color of surrounding skin, it usually drags a bit for something like that to heal but when it does the white spot remains, although I noticed from the past that after a while with sun exposure it gets its colors back.
I've been putting some ointment on it (hydrocortisone i think is the name) but it's really stubborn or maybe i'm not too persistent. could it be some sort of a reaction to foods or any conditions?
