Hello, Leucoderma, also known as vitiligo, is a rare skin disease characterized by white spots and patches. The white patch or spot is called as leucoderma when it occurs without any preceding disease it is called Vitiligo.Leucoderma in literal term means white skin. Please attach a photo to confirm that. Or else consult a dermatologist.
