After being in the sun the othe day I noticed tiny white dots on my legs-especially my shins. They are very tiny and ony a few but it has worried me since as I am only 21 years old and never experienced this before. Do you know at all what this could be....
I have those but they are not just on my legs. I asked my doctor about them and he said that they were harmless, it is just a loss of pigment to the skin. It isn't cancer and didn't warrant any further testing, or visits
