SelsunBlue works like a charm for me when I start getting my white spots. I started gettin em last year for the first time and used Selsun blue 3 times, started tanning, and they went away. Now, summers starting again, so they appeared again. Used Selsun blue twice now, already disappearing. U gotta let the Selsun blue sit on every single white spot for 5-10 mins. Do this 3 times, tan a couple times, Aaanndd they're gone

I think this condition may be TINEA VERSICOLOR. There is some information about it on Wikipedia.org . They say that using an OTC Selsun product (there is something called just Selsun that is not the shampoo) that contains Selenium Sulfide will fight the fungus. This has a higher concentration of Selenium Sulfide than Selsun Blue, the shampoo. I'm going to the pharmacy to see if they have it. Hope this helped someone!
Thank you Caroline, this was very, very helpful!

Actually it sounds like vetiligo(i think thats how u spell it). any way michael jackson had the very same disorder. It starts out with some white patches that spread like what you are talkin about.
Noooo you have no clue what your talking about. Michael is black...this person is talking about the sun directly causing spots from a tan. So its not actually called vitilgo!

Hi I recently got all these white spots on my back and shoulders and they are now appearing on my stomach. I went to the gp and she told me it looked like vitiligo but I done some research and came across tinea versicolour which makes more sense to me because they all appeared at once really. I had been on a two week holiday and then had been using sunbeds on occasion amd after going to the swimming pool and sauna these spots just appeared.

Does anyone have any similar experiences, I really dont want vitiligo and have no family history of these white spots.

I'm 31 had tv for years due to spending weeks in a tropical climate..selenium sulfide 2.5% lotion once a day for ten days along w selsun blue in shower left for ten minute controls it in warm weather but ketokonizol and fluconizol are pulse treated for months prior to warm.weather. stay dry as possible a day at the beach could make it baaaad!
