Dear MSapulai,

A pigmentary or color changes on the skin should be evaluated by a dermatologist. If there is a loss of color, that could signify early vitiligo. Sometimes minor damage to the skin can result in pigment loss. There are a host of other conditions that also result in color loss. You must see a dermatologist to determine the correct diagnosis and treatment.
