Q:

Dear 100 Hour Board,

I have two white patches (about thumbprint-size)on the sides of my chin - not completely white, but noticably paler than the surrounding skin when it get tan - and when I get stubble, the bristles in those areas are white (i get sort of a salt-and-pepper blend over the rest of my face). What are they? I've been looking around at dermatology sites, but can't seem to find an answer. Also, they appeared about 2-3 years ago, and tend to change shape/size over long periods...

A: Dear Spot,

The spots on your chin are probably caused by lack of pigmentation in the skin. It may be due to something like vitiligo. (Try searching dermatology sites for pigment). So, for some reason the skin on your chin hasn't replaced it's pigment (this can also be caused by injury).
