about a year ago i had white spots appearing on my face. they weren't pimples or anything of that sort, but just certain spots on my face turning white. my mom made me take this internal body cleansing drink which i took for a while and after my white spots went away. recently, however, the spots returned. i was just wondering what's causing these spots on my face. is there some sort of bacteria in my body, or do i not have enough nutrition or some sort?

thanks =]

Just happened to see this post!! I would do the cleanse again. It can be from lack of nutrition, stress and lack of sleep as the latter is my life!! I have experienced them myself on my arms and they come and go I have noticed.
If anything I would go to a naturalpath. I take herbs etc and have been very happy. And when I get the white spots I believe it is lack of me taking the herbal supplements (that include Vitamins) along with no rest. Hope this helps. But the cleanse I would try again for the heck of it and see if it does the same results again. Maybe someone else can have an answer!

I have started getting whiteish, well lighter than my skin color, spots on my face. First I worried that it was a disease..
So how do I make it disappear?

And I'll try the sleeping a lot thing.

Hmm.. Im 13 and i've had these little white spots all OVER my body for 5 - 6 years now. Gotten used to it but recently some started coming out on my forehead. But my case is of dry skin. Yours might be caused of dry skin too, but I advise you to try to put your lotion/cream on your skin everyday and I MEAN EVERYDAY. My family is from Guyana and alot of those people that i've talked to had a similar case just like mine and they said that they used their cream/lotion everyday and kept on putting it on their skin and it eventually went away. I tried that as well and most went away but then I get caught up in school and everything and I have no time somedays or I might just feel lazy and more come back. But let me tell you just try it if you don't already lather your skin with your lotion/cream everyday, to try IT AND IT MIGHT WORK.. depending if you have the same thing as me. Also the cream I use is AVEENO. Dry skin. :]

Five Reasons Little White Bumps Are On Your Face and How to Get Rid Of Them
by Naweko San-Joyz

Are you making these mistakes each time you spot a little white little bump on your face? Fixing those little white bumps starts with a small dose of education and ends with a big dose of prevention. After understanding the five reasons below, your little bumps should give way to clearer skin.

Reason #1: You have no clue what those little white bumps are anyway.
Little white bumps, or milia, are keratin-filled cysts, or simply little globs of protein under the skin. There are generally two types of milia. Primary milia may result from oil glands that have not fully or properly developed. Secondary milia result from trauma to the skin.

LOOK IT UP IT"S REALLY HELPFUL

My name is jessica and i have had these little white spots for about 6months now. i dont really know what it is but sometimes its because you need more irone etc. also the cream thing does work i have just started useing creams and they are slowly going away.... the little white spots are dead skin on your body or face.. when you go in the shower just give your body a good skrobe then put cream on! Thats what i do everyday and mine are starting to go away

Ok, these white spots can appear for many reasons. I know people who had white spots on their face, and they disappear and re-appear over time. Well, the first thing could be dry skin. Second, this can also be Fungus related. This can happen from sweat. If you play sports and sweat a lot, it can cause fungus on your face thus creating white spots. This is only one way of getting white spots, and ask a doctor for cream. From my experience, white spots have disappeared over time, the cream didn't help me though. now, i have them again.

For who ever is reading this, tell me, when you get out of the shower, does your face turn very dry and you feel like you need lotion right away?

... White spots can also be caused from stress. If you do have related skin problems such as Psoriasis etc. It can also caused from stress. Trust me, people have got many of this skin conditions from built up stress. Once again ,it can also be genetics (white spots) or just a natural cause.

No you do not have aids, 99.9% sure that you can have aids from whitespots. White spots can be a simple cause of fungus on face, oily skin and maybe other natural causes.

Genius said it. Look up MILIA.
I have them on my face and, well other places. Little white spots, something under the skin. If I take a needle poke a hole , squeeze white stuff comes out. I have a couple of large ones below my eyebrow and have tried to squeeze them empty thinking they would go away. NOT!. They come back. Always come back. There is nothing I can do manually or washing to remove them. Adermatologist may have techniques that can help. I don't know. I seem to remember high cholesterol being a factor in something related to this

hey everyone! I 've read all your comments and i can concern. The light white discoloration or white spots on my face are on my cheeks. They are fairly medium sized but they come and go. I use St. Ives medicated cream before and it did work. But I have no idea of the cause of these spots. It is really annoying! hope i helped anyone ;)
