Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I got many tiny white dots mainly on my thighs and butt area. I noticed that the white spots are always on the areas where my hair follicles grow.

Kindly help.


Welcome to icliniq.com.

According to your medical history and symptoms most probably you have tinea versicolor. Tinea versicolor is a fungal skin infection that commonly appears on the face, neck, and back but sometimes on the lower abdomen and thigh. Skin affected by tinea versicolor appears as multiple white spots or patches. No need to worry about it. Take a capsule Itraconazole 100 mg of and apply cream Miconazole. And let me know if these lighter dots do not go.

I hope this helps.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
