About five years ago, I was afraid I had vitiligo. I started getting white blotches and spots like that on my hands and arms.
Turns out it is just age! I have more of them now, on my legs too. You know how some people get dark age spots? Well I get white age spots instead! It
is only visible in summer when I get a little tan. You start running out of melanin with age and it just isn't distributed well anymore. I wear lots
of sunscreen daily. I don't tan anymore, I blotch.
You're younger than I, but it might be that?
Come to think of it, I ran into someone with a strange thing- she started losing all the pigment in her arm pits. Only
in her armpits! It was
suggested by our doctor friend that it could be caused something in her deodorant.... it could be a reaction to a chemical? Strong products used to
wash your hands??
