There are many skin conditions which causes white spots. Most common in which is the skin condition Vitiligo. And other are Albinism, Nevus de pigmentosus, Pityriasis Alba, White scars and hypo pigmentation and Idiopathic guttate hypomelanosis.

Color of our skin is called skin pigment, and the process of coloration of skin is called pigmentation. When a loss of pigmentation occurs in certain part of skin, a white spots appear in that part.
