White patches underarm
Dr the white patches have been following me for 6 years without growing further after I used the Nivea whitening deodorant for quite sometimes as it doesn't appear to be white patches straight. Is there any remedy to cure this? It is quite annoying.

Hello,
It is difficult to make a diagnosis without examination, but some possibilities are there. First, it can be due to atopic dermatitis.

Second,it can be pityrisis versicolor. This is characterized by hypopigmented, round to oval, scaling patches on the upper arms, neck, or shoulders.

Thirdly,it can be vitiligo.It is a pigmentation disorder in which melanocytes (the cells that make pigment) in the skin are destroyed. As a result, white patches appear on the skin in different parts of the body.

Treatment is different for all three.So I feel that an evaluation by a dermatologist will help in confirming a diagnosis.
It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
