Patches of white hair appearing.

Posted , 4 users are following.


I was just wondering if anyone could give me some advice. Over the past 2 years I have started to get patches of white hair appearing on my head and on other places of my body. This is the latest one that has appeared over the past year. I also have one on the side of my head that is about the same size. The hair still grows and it feels like my normal hair but it's just gone white.

Obviously it's making me a little self concious as I am only 21. 

Does anyone have any idea what these are?

Many thanks
