Brief Answer: Follows. Detailed Answer: Dear Madam , Thank you for posting your query on XXXXXXX Well looking into your problem I would like to tell you that considering your age and the symptoms you are giving white spots can be a sign of vitiligo . Plus hypothyroidism may also give rise to white spots . Certain drugs also lead to this but chances are less . I think you should get yourself evaluated and seek help from a skin specialist for this . After determination of the cause treatment will be decided . Take care. Dr. Shruti
