Thanks for writing in.

White spots on the body can be vitiligo,IGH,tinea versicolor,Seborheic dermatitis.

Also I would like to know are these spots itchy?

Are they scaly?

What is there appx size?

Since when you have them ?

Are they permanent or keep changing?

Can you upload good quality photos of the affected area.

Photo can be helpful to predict the condition.

Anticipating your response.
