This May I got chicken pox , afterwards I used RetinA to clear up the dark spots, what remained however was blotchy white spots on my skin 2 months later, could it be a fungus? attached is a photo of my face currently. What you guys think?

Also, the white spots are way larger than the pea-sized amount I put as instructed by RetinA. It got larger. It just came at the same time I used the cream. So it may be co-incidental. Peeling? Fungus?

It could be tinea, or it could also be vitiligo... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vitiligo
