White patches

Hi

A couple years ago I got a couple white patches (like a light brown) on my lower tummy (around my hips). Recently they have gotten bigger and I now have one on my neck and on my right arm.

What could this possibly be and what could be causing it?

This could be a fungal infection (ptyriasis alba) or a outo immune skin disease (vitiligo). Treatment for both are very specific, so show your doctor so that he can prescribe the right treatment for you.
