In brief: Vitiligo

Vitiligo is a skin condition in which there is a loss of brown color (pigment) from areas of skin, resulting in irregular white patches that feel like normal skin.

In brief: White patches

Vitiligo can appear in different forms ranging from small drop like spots to large patches.
It is usually symmetric (both sides of the body are similarly affected) and presents as depigmented patches (patches with no skin pigment at all) unlike other mimicking skin diseases often presenting with hypopigmented patches (skin areas with less than normal skin pigment).
