White spots on legs? *pics added* Mrs. Mendez 2 kids; North Carolina 31 posts
25th Jun '11

My 2 year old has white spots (patches) on her legs. I first noticed it about a week ago. Which was also about the same time she got a diaper rash, which I just can't seem to get to go fully away. She had eczema as a baby and would get dry patches of skin, but the color of her skin would never change. Is it because she is tan now? (She has a tan line from her bathing suit from all the swimming we do)




ETA: took these just now.

Is this her eczema acting up? Or is it something else?

Okay, I'll take some tonight.
I've just feel like it's never been like that before.

Quoting ILY C&A Forever:" I had a friend who woke up one morning and the pigment was gone where her eyebrows are. She has somewhat dark skin and it's just patches of white"


How long ago was that? And did it spread?

Oh ok. Thanks. Did you ever ask what it was? Is it noticeable? Is it more noticeable in the summer when you tan?

Yep! The pigment is gone in her legs in those spots.




It did spread. It's on both her eyebrows and on her nose now.




They call it the Michael Jackson Disease.
