    Help! Tiny white spots on arm and legs

    Hi everybody... so I am using African Queen (special) cream and it is giving me tiny white spots on my arms and legs...it is not anywhere else on my body... my torso, face and back are all even no white spots. It seems to be mostly where hair is grown on my legs and arms. Is this normal? Is there something in the cream causing this and how can I prevent it or get rid of it? P.s I do use shea butter and coconut oil daily and exfoliate daily in the shower which has not helped.

    Had this issue with Dodo mixed with Clinic clear.. Stop the Cream and just keep on Exfoliating with Amlactin or Fair and white Exfoliating lotion or Glytone(If you can afford it).You are likely to darken a bit but it would get rid of the spots.Just take your mind off it while doing so.

    I had stop using the cream for a few months and the spots went away but I re-darkened ofcourse.... I thought that's just how my skin lightened because I've been using this cream forever. Any suggestions on a cream I could use that's good and won't give me any spots...thanks in advance for your help

    You can try layering your cream with Amlactin or any la lotion. So exfoliant first (la lotion) then wait 30 minutes and use your lightening cream in the PM only.

    Also African Queen apparently contains roids.

    It's won't be listed, it's a hidden ingredients but if you just stop using the cream like that you will redarken rapidly. You need to ween yourself of the cream whilst using another strong lightening cream which does not contain steroids.

    Have a read through the below threads.
