    Does anyone know why this would happen only on the penis.... I have a couple of spots just on the shaft of the penis...... Someone told me it was due to low test levels....... Anyone else have experience with this.......?

    It's possible that it is vitiligo, but it could be something else, too. Certain rather common fungal infections mimic vitiligo very closely, but you can oust them with some antibiotics and regain the "lost" pigment.

    If it is indeed vitiligo, the earlier you diagnose it and start to treat it with narrowband UVB, the less likely it is you'll end up looking like Michael Jackson, who incidentally also had the ailment. I have it, too.. had it for over 2 years now and I've lost some pigment here and there. Nothing major yet. I'm trying to save up on a full body UVB cabinet with which I could treat myself at home.
    Even if it is vitiligo, there is a chance it will turn out to be the kind that is localized to one area of your body; where it will remain. The slightly more common form of vitiligo, generalized vitiligo, will likely progress to cover more areas of your body, though (unless treated).

    Sadly, as of today there is no cure for vitiligo and it is generally a disease that progresses throughout one's life, or at least for several decades. It is documented that elderly vitiligo patients who have had the condition for a very long time eventually experience a halt in its progress. There are also some documented cases of spontaneous reversal of the condition, reactivation of the dormant melanocytes and full repigmentation. This can perhaps be induced by the right dietary and supplemental choices, but I don't know how that can be done.

    Anyway, let's hope it turns out to be something else instead!

    My girlfriend in 8th grade had it all over her chest, ass, and hands.. I know it's not contagious. My penis is still the same peanut butter color it's always been.

    I think you unintentionally misspoke - he should try an antifungal - such as Lotrimin or Terbinafine Hydrochloride cream - as opposed to an antibiotic.

    HAN, could you elaborate a bit further on this connection between copper imbalances and vitiligo? I'd be more than happy if you could write a few short lines on the subject. And I'd obviously be overjoyed if I could rid myself of the ailment (if that is even possible)! It may not be life-threatening, but it is disfiguring, or will be eventually (unless I spend my entire life frying myself with an UVB device to keep the pigment, in which case I'll probably die of skin cancer at the age of 50).

    About Vitiligo
    Vitiligo medically known as achromia, which means loss of color. Vitiligo is a disorder in which white patches of skin appear on different parts of the body. Vitiligo is more commonly known as leucoderma, which simply means white (leuco) skin (derma), i.e. a skin disorder where it loses its normal coloration. This happens because the cells that make pigment (color) in the skin are destroyed. Basically, Vitiligo can hardly be called as a disease but a skin- disorder that has more social than medical significance, especially amongst the dark skin
    people. Due to retarded melanin formation, there is loss of pigmentation. The Vitiligo sufferers are observed all over the world, including the white skin communities. Males and females are affected equally, inclusive of children age group. It may begin at any age. Childhood vitiligo is not uncommon.

    in addition to the other comments here, i'd consider getting your estradiol and test levels checked, ur hormones can effect ur pheomelanin and eumelanin levels. and check if ur diet might be high in phytoestrogens or other endocrine disruptors.

    What Causes Vitiligo?

    The exact cause for the pigmentary disorder remains unknown. However, there are theories suggesting autoimmune link, hormonal connection, genetic tendencies, etc. Vitiligo may be an autoimmune disease. These diseases happen when your immune system mistakenly attacks some part of your own body. In vitiligo, the immune system may destroy the melanocytes in the skin. The familial incidence is almost 20 to 30%. Often observed in the family members. If the parents have Vitiligo, there are more chances of one developing the same. However, it is not a rule. At the same time, numerous cases of vitiligo do not have a relevant family history of Vitiligo.
    The precipitating factors have been identified as due to pressure of tight clothes (such as on the waist) or certain occupational hazards such as wearing certain rubber hand gloves. Long term intake of certain drugs is found to produce the pigmentary disorder. In many cases, especially in children, we often have no clue why one develops vitiligo.

    Vitiligo Symptoms

    The typical appearance of Vitiligo is a milky while depigmented spot or spots. It may vary from a single white spot to multiple spots. The shape too is a variable. In some cases generalized de-pigmentation observed all over the body. It has a tendency to start as a single spot and gradually grow in size and number. It may present with a single or several spots on limbs or abdomen or back and then spreading to other parts of the body. Some cases showing affection of the
    mucocutaneous junctions such as finger-tips, corners of the mouth, private parts, around eyes. The spread of the disorder is usually slow and progressive. Symmetrical appearance on both the side of the body (say, on the legs, hands, etc.) is common. In rare cases one finds vitiligo spreading all over the body.

    It's most likely not from Vitilgo. It may be from over masturbation. I read about it on an asian health website. I forget the mechanics of it, but it had to do with overusage of the hormones and triggers of the pituitary gland.
