Brief Answer: details below Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for the query and photograph. You have developed vitiligo. It is an auto immune disorder where the pigment producing cells of skin are destroyed. You need treatment with topical steroids. Your husband need not worry, this disease does not spread with contact. Let me know if you have any other doubts. Thank you
