Hey cali boy! I may have some answers for you..... maybe not.Look on page 5 on this topic(skin,nails ,hair),top of the page for Dorrie posting "sunless tanning and sunspots,"and for Lostcause on page 4 posting "red spots on skin," I wrote to them about Tenia Veriscolor .This condition can cause white spots to appear on the skin when tanning,or reddish brown raised itchy areas on skin in off tanning season .I don't want to get into it here, my 2 replies to the previously mentioned postings explain what it is ,how to get rid of it and keep from having a reoccurance.Talk to a dermatologist if you can ,a simple skin scraping or a special light (that all derms. have) will reveal if you have T.V.Read the postings and drop a line if you have further questions about it,I had it and have rid myself of it (controlled it?)for quite awhile.Good luck!!!
I also get tinea versicolor, which is caused by a fungus " actually a yeast" that is normally a part of your normal flora. For some reason in some people it tends to like them more or something and keeps growing, for unknown reasons. I put an antifungal cream on it called ketoconazole, and it fades within a few weeks, but sun exposure seems to make it appear or stand out or when it is really hot or humid outside and can keep occuring.
