Hi It is vitiligo in which colour forming cells of skin are destroyed by immune cells leading to white patches. If you are getting new patches or want existing patches to form new colour consult a qualified dermatologist. There are various options like oral and Topical treatment, photo therapy as well as surgery depending on extent, site of patches and it's stability. Best regards Dr Vijay Adhe, Eternis Skin & Hair Clinic, Pune.
