1. No. The most it can do is leave your skin red and prone to getting red when hot or wet or exposed to sun, even with a block because the heat rays still get through.
2. I don't know of such a condition.
3. I think he is right and it should take 2-3 months at most.
5. I don't think there is need to even contemplate this.
Is it at least possible that you are staring at your face with greater intensity and noticing things that were always there? Here's a way to tell: show a Friend who doesn't know what you're worried about to look at you face and at a photo from before, and--without any hints or leading questions--ask what if anything seems to have changed. You may be surprised to learn that little has changed.
I have noticed an obvious appearance of white spots on backs of my hands and some white small blotches on my arms (near elbow area) recently. I do not sit in the sun and have not been on any recent sun holidays. I am very fair skinned n ormally but would have acquired a bit of a tanned colour on hands and arms during this summer (Ireland). However these spots have just appeared in recent weeks. I was afraid it was Vitiligo but my GP and also A&E doctors do not think so. What else could cause this?
I also got a bad burning about 5 years ago in Gran Canaria totally by accident which has left a couple of white patches which will never tan.
