About 7 months ago, I noticed that I was getting these really light spots under my arm. I finally went to the doctor and she had never seen anything like it. She didn't think it was vitiligo, so she told me to switch to a mild deodrant (Almay) and prescribed a cortizone to put on the spots at night. I went back for a follow up appointment and she noticed that the hair that was there was still black so she said there was pigment in those patches of light skin. However, she still doesn't know what is going on. She said it is rare for vitiligo to start in the underarms. HELP!
