Skin In Groin Area Turning Pink From Black And Pubic Hair Whitening?

Hi,
I am 24 years old and none of my hair in the head is Grey or white. They are perfectly black.
But recently in my groin area I noticed some Pink Patches (My skin color is black) and the pubic hair growing from those small region are white where as all the pubic hairs in the rest of the groin area is completely black.
Point to be noted that I have never made any sexual contact with anyone.
Could you please tell me what’s wrong and if it is curable?
Thanks a lot in advance.

  1. Halo H,
    The symptoms that you describe are similar to those that present in vitiligo, which is the loss of skin pigment. Skin gets its colour from pigment cells known as melanocytes. When those cells are damaged or destroyed, they can no longer produce pigment, causing white or colourless spots to appear. The spots can grow larger over time and eventually blend together so that large portions of the skin have no colour. While no one knows why this occurs, many experts suspect it is related to problems within the autoimmune system. There is also some evidence of links to heredity. People of any skin colour can develop vitiligo, but it’s most obvious on dark skin. It commonly occurs on the hands, face, upper chest, around body openings – like eyes and nose, in body folds – like armpits and groin, or at the site of an injury. When vitiligo impacts the hair, premature gray is the result. One common treatment is PUVA — a kind of “repigmentation” therapy involving the drug psoralen, and exposure to UV light. This can help increase the amount of melanocyte cells at the skin’s surface. Other treatments include prescription-strength corticosteroid cream, light/laser treatments, and, in rare instances, skin grafting.
