Jane:

Pigmentaion is a bothersome problem in people of all skin types.  There are many things you can do for it.  To start with, you can buy in the pharmacy with no prescription creams containing 2% hydroquinone.  Applying that once every morning, and using a moisturizer or makeup with SPF 15 or more is likely to help a lot.  If after 2 months you still don't like the way you look, ask a dermatologist to help.  between prescription-strength skin lighteners and light chemical peels, you don't have to suffer withpigmentation you don't want.

Good luck.

my teenage son has had a skin rash since summer that has not gone away. he presents with tan skin but small dime size or smaller white marks on his neck and shoulders only. it appears as if he was on the beach and sand prevented certain areas from tanning on him. there is no itching or peeling/ scaliness involved. it is difiguring to him and our family doctor has not  given any indication on what this could be or how we can treat it. i have another teenager that appears to have the same thing but to a lesser degree on his arms. any comments or ideas would be appreciated.
