skin cancer: i have several white spots on my skin; likely due to over abuse of sitting in sun without screen. the largest one - on my leg is about 1/2" in round dia. I have had it for a few years; doc prescribed Elocom Mometsone furoate; i've also used vitamine E cream, lavender oil, goats milk cream, etc. the spot looks like it wants to clear up, but won't. any suggestions?
As I am not involved in your care, and I cannot examine you, I cannot offer you a diagnosis (or treatment recommendations) for this skin problem. If there is any question about these "spots" being skin cancers, however, then they should certainly be biopsied or surgically removed.
