White Spots/Sun Damage
« on: August 02, 2011, 10:15:14 PM »
I have white spots from sun damage, I presume, all over my body. My mother and sister share these spots. Will rolling help, or do they need to be needled? Thank you.

White Spots/Sun Damage
« Reply #1 on: August 03, 2011, 12:44:27 PM »
If your mother and sister also have those white spots, it seems it is some kind of skin pigment disorder running in your family. Sun can cause white spots by destroying melanocytes (melanin-producing cells) but it is not very likely that all three of you have an issue with melanocytes getting destroyed by the sun. Do you have the spots also in areas that are hardly ever exposed to sun? Did you have them as a child? I could be a fungal infection of Tinea versicolor or a condition called Leukoderma etc. If we do not know the origin of the spots, I cannot tell if dermarolling can help. Maybe you should consider a visit to a dermatologist.
