Hi. This is likely something called tinea versicolor which is a benign fungal skin infection. Sometimes sunburned skin can become white as it heals but it doesn't sound like you actually had a sunburn. You can try over the counter Lotrimin cream three times a day for a week for this but if that doesn't clear it up you'll need prescription ketoconazole cream
