White Spots on Hands Face and Arms

Hello :) I was wondering if someone on here would be able to help me. I am a 19 year old Creole/Black female. My question is about some white spots on my skin. They are on my cheeks, arms (mostly right forearm) hands, thighs, and a couple on my legs. They vary in size with a majority of them being about pinpoint size, or the size of a small pebble. I would say I have at least 80 of them on my right forearm. They are flat and do not itch or anything. Someone said they may be from sun exposure, but I rarely go out into the sun. When I do, I have sun screen on. I would really like to know if anyone has a clue as to what they might be. I will post a picture later if that will help any.

Hi Mya,
White spots on the skin can be caused due to various factors ranging from skin conditions such as vitiligo, fungal infections, pityriasis alba to hypopigmentation due to prolonged exposure to the sun.

For your particular white spots it would be best to consult a dermatologist for the correct diagnosis.
