I have white spots and full out eczema. the spots are a mild form of eczema. I can live with eczema but these white spots are unbareable and nothing helps them. I'd rather have painful eczema that isnt real noticible than have non painfull white spots. I REFUSE to be pale but it's a waste of effort to tan because I look like a burn victim and the skin peels. I've tried endless amounts of stereroid creams and treatments etc. I am just so embarassed of my skin. I'm sick of goin to the dermatologist with a new solution that doesnt work. Any advice?

" I used to get them too... I always called them sun spots... They're so annoying and I love to tan and I couldnt because like you said you look like a burn victim!

Whenever I would tan and see those little white spots immediatly I put some of my cream (Fluticasone propionate) on it and it seemed to go away.

I've been white spot free now for a year... I don't know why they went away I guess I just grew out of it. It could have been because I started using 'Eucerin Calming' lotion and it really soothes your skin even if your not itchy. I've used eucerin everyday since about a year ago and my skin is a lot nicer now... I only get small flare-ups on my legs and it's usually in the winter time. just stay moisturized and maybe they'll go away!

But in the winter I remember instead of tanning I actually got a spray tan... The mystic tan and versa spa seem to turn me orange and fake looking but the custom spray tan is awesome and it covered the white spots! So I would try that! It could be fun lol "

" try exfoliating without being too vicious with your skin and then going to tan. a mixture of olive oil and sea salts (without fragrance) helps you exfoliate and heal. Remember that you're not ugly (that's all in your head) - it only took me 27 years to accept that! "

" I have white spots all over my feet and legs, which i think is the loss of pigmentation because i've had severe eczema since i was one. I'm dark skinned so its quite annoying! "
