Big White Spots on Face

So these white spots just appeared on my face during the summer. Only difference is that I sleep later in the summer than usual. After I get out of the shower these spots usually turn dry and cracked. What is this/how can I get rid of them?

Re: Big White Spots on Face

My guess? Tinea versicolor. Ointment will take it away. My only other guess is that you have vitilligo, which is where the skin loses pigment. Again, there are ointments to help, but it would be better if you had tinea, for sure. Go to the doctor. Your increased sweatiness in the summer could be contributing to your skin issue if it is tinea. Very common in people of your age.
Best wishes, Sue
