    I am mixed race (mostly white) I have an olive skin colour but some parts of my body are very white, such as my inner arms and the inner thighs. I have noticed that I have small splotches/spots of very white skin on some areas of my body, mostly on my legs and some on my stomach. I have no family history of the condition. Could this be the start of vitiligo or is it just my ethnicity? Or something else?

    Shifting clouds?

    Have you googled vitiligo and compared the pictures to your own skin discolouration?
