I just bought Selsun Blue (Selenium Sulfide) in hope of curing the little white spots on my skin.

I read online about Selenium Sulfide that is could be dangerous:

"Selenium sulfide. A topical anti-fungal ingredient found in many anti-dandruff shampoos, it works by splitting into selenium and sulfide ions in skin cells, and lowering the turnover rate of skin cells (opposite effect of an exfoliant). Side effects include hair loss or discoloration (turning green!), oily scalp and skin and eye irritation. Very bad symptoms include vomiting, abdominal pain and nausea, and the loss of fingernails. Selenium sulfide has also been linked to damage of internal organs."

I think I'm going to try the treatment/s Sans posted, or just cocanut oil.
