    white spots from tanning?

    Advertisements
    i usually tan on a regular basis but my package ended and i noticed these white spots on my upper abs, upper back, and on my chest. i know it's fairly common but it won't scrub off. it just looks like the tan has rubbed off, but only in these spots. like especially where my bra goes. i want to start again, but i want those to go away first so i can be even. anyone ever had this before? how'd you get them to go away?

    Have you tried tanning lotions? I used to get them back in the day when I tanned A LOT.

    I got them on my shoulders and chest and I just figured it was spots that just didn't have pigment I never treated mine.

    this sounds weird but i worked at a tanning salon and we had a lot of ppl with this problem and we had a lot of literature for different things that could happen...
    anyway you need to get a dandruff shampoo and put it on those spots it will get rid of it...

    You can, it is a fungus, so I put Monistat on it, it is what they would give you Rx for it. It spreads so much though.

    I got mine from wrestling. I still have it, it has been 4 years. It is on my neck now, I am afraid it will get to my face.

    And, yes, some dandruff shampoo will work, it has to be the right active ingredient
