You told that the white skin lesions have been present over your body for 16 years. I hope the lesions are asymptomatic.
It may be a chance factor that these lesions appeared just after getting the injection.
You may be suffering from vitiligo. If the lesions are progressing rapidly, then you need quick consultation with a dermatologist. Because the regression of vitiligo lesions is a little bit unpredictable, but the progression can definitely be prevented by initiation of treatment.

Hi placidatellis,
Thanks for posting your query.
I think you have some depigmentation disorder of the skin e.g. vitiligo.
It is unlikely that effect of infected injections can last that long and in that form.
You should consult an experienced physician or a dermatologist of your locality and get a work up done for this.
I think it is some thing unrelated to the treatment, you have taken in childhood.
Hope I have answered your query.
If you have any questions I will be happy to answer.
