White Circles Appear On The Skin After Swimming?
, I want to ask, after undergoing physical tests. Run, after swimming. Then the next day a white circle appeared on my jaw. Almost similar to tinea versicolor but it doesn’t look like tinea versicolor. What is that?
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Whitish spots on the skin can arise due to several possibilities, including:
idiopathic guttate hypomelanosis arising from excessive sun exposure on post-inflammatory hypopigmentation skin that appears after an inflammatory condition on skin tinea versicolor or fungal infections Malassezia furfur vitiligo leprosy This condition is not dangerous and does not require specific treatment. Whitish spots will disappear by itself even though it requires a very long time (can be months). Nevertheless to find out the exact cause, it is necessary to do a skin examination directly. We recommend that you check yourself directly to a dermatologist so that further evaluation can be done.
Here are some things you can do:
avoid direct sunlight to the skin, you should use a hat or umbrella when it's hot and make sure you use sunscreen every time you go outside to wash your face properly and correctly to disguise the blot for a while, you can use cosmetics. to get rid of it faster and permanently, consult a dermatologist for certain face cream medicines (you cannot buy freely) or do dermabrasion and microdermabrasion.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
