Hello
I understand your problem.
The possibilities could be as simple as vitiligo or leukoderma or may be coplicated like actinic chelitis. These two can be sorted out by inspecting the skin lesion. If you can send a good photograph I would be able to comment and advice better
Thanks for your query
