My teenager now has white spots around the whole nose/mouth area. He told me that it burns when he gets out of the shower. He initially started using the product because he gets these severe dry spots on his face. He is nice and tan most everywhere, but that one area.
Desonide - What can I do about skin discoloration from the use of this product?
