Since moving to a tropical country, the skin on my arms have started slowly to grow little patchs of discolored skin that looks like perpetual goose bumps. Gradually these patches have grown and joined to cover my entire arms ans sholders. I don't know if it's some kind of tropical skin fungus or a diet deficiency.
