White skin patches on penis

Around the base of my penis shaft, I have some white/pinkish (lighter than the overall penis skin color) spots or discolorations. Some developed about two years ago, others about a year ago. There hasn't been any change in them since. I think these may just be skin blemishes, but I'm not sure. They appeared in places where i squeezed hair follicles that were clogged, like a pimple. There isn't any pain or any other symptoms whatsoever. Also, a a smaller spot seems to be fading and darkening around the edges some, so I'm hoping it's starting to go away, but it's taking a lot longer than I want it to. The others haven't made any progress. The only other thing it seems like it could be to me is vitiligo. Does anyone have a definite idea of what these are, if they'll ever go away, or any advice?

Re: White skin patches on penis

Sounds like vitiligo, which is generally harmless. Have the doctor take a look, the next time you are there for something else, just to put your mind at ease.
