Skin pigmentation


I am suffering terribly with mass white pigmentation spots covering the top if my back, shoulders, arms, neck and under my chin to my face and also some on my chest. I am so embarrassed by them and people look at me like I have a disease and whisper. It impacts my relationships or lack of them, what I can wear, my work life and I am so depressed I have even thought about taking my own life. I look in the mirror and look ugly. I was referred to a skin specialist but they said there was no cure except camouflage make up which is useless. 😢

  • Your symptoms are a lot like mine were. Might be something as simple as a yeast infection on your skin. Look up pityriasis versicolor. You might want to try this:

    Buy a strong dandruff shampoo. Shower every day and put the dandruff shampoo on your skin where the spots are (as if the shampoo were a body wash). Leave on for about 8 minutes. Rinse thoroughly. Do this for about two weeks.

  • thank you for reply but I have tried this and it didn't work.

  • Hi, I had the exact same problem for the first time in my life and I was terrified. The white pigment patches covered large areas of my neck, chest, arms, thighs and face. However my pigment is finally coming back! I went to 5 different doctors I was told I had Psoriasis, Vitiligo and Different types of fungal infections. In the end I did a lot of research on pityriasis versicolor and I thought I definitely have that. In the end I booked an appointment with another doctor and I told him how much of a big impact that this is having on my life and it's making me so depressed and I need a treatment that will actually work. He prescribed me Nizoral anti fungal cream which I use twice a day, Ketoconazole shampoo that I wash my body with every day and an antifungal medication called Terbinafine. I think in your case because it's affecting so many areas you definitely need a anti-fungal medication because just the shampoo and creams alone won't have much of an impact. If you need anymore information feel free to contact me on
