Hi,
I have a small patch of skin on the middle of my back that continues to flake off. I've noticted it in the shower for the past few weeks. I didn't look at it in the mirror until a few days ago. It is a light pink color which is different from my normal skin color. I'm not sure if this is something I should be worried about. Should I see a dermatologist?
