How does it start

I'm not sure if this is related to vitiligo but on my legs I have noticed little white dots developing ( i am brown skinned) they are tiny circles completely white or started with one or two but now I have noticed quite a few only on my legs and thighs though could this be vitiligo or is it likely to be something else?

Re: How does it start

Thank you for your question. This is likely to be guttate hypomelanosis. You can read more about this common skin condition on my website and of course it would be even better to see your dermatologist to check the diagnosis.

I hope this is helpful.
