A: White spots have several causes – Vitiligo, Tinea versicolor, and pressure points are just a few.
*Vitiligo is irregularly-shaped white patches of skin that does not tan. It is caused by a condition that causes melanocyte cells in the affected area to degenerate and die off. Your physician can help you reverse the effects of vitiligo.
*Tinea Versicolor, or “sunspots” is dandruff-like fungus that flakes off the scalp onto the upper body. This condition is very common and has nothing to do with cleanliness. Extra-strength dandruff shampoo is often used to treat it.
*Pressure points are seen on the skin surfaces that contact the equipment, such as shoulder blades, the backs of calves, and upper arms. To avoid this, shift positions during the session so that all skin receives oxygen.
