I'll have to do a search on that. Her white spots (she has 2 of them) feel just the same as the rest of her skin, smooth and flat with no dryness or redness. One appeared sometime in the first year and is the same size now (a bit smaller than a dime) and the other just recently appeared on her upper thigh (same size and general shape). Neither are perfectly round, but circular-ish. The edge are a bit jagged and the shape slightly elongated however. There is no variation of color or tone within them, bumps, roughness, or ickiness of any kind within them either.
If it makes a difference dd is 1/4 mexican, 1/8 native american, and the rest is white (mostly english). She isn't overly dark without a tan (pretty much looks like a white kid 3/4 of the year) but her spots were white enough to be visible before her summer tan.
ETA: just did a search and the first 182 pics that came up did not look like what dd has. So I don't think thats probable at this point.
