Hi
Not all the discolored spots are leprosy.
Leprosy is caused by a bacteria which is similar to the one which causes tuberculosis.
There are some signs & symptoms, by which we, doctors, diagnose the condition.
I suggest you to consult a dermatologist, who can analyze & diagnose your real problem & advice
Good luck
