Hello and welcome to e health forum.

It is difficult to diagnose skin issues without proper examination of the lesions. Additional medical history also helps to provide the proper diagnosis and treatment advice.

Hypopigmentation - reduced skin tone can be induced by various causes including - trauma (most common cause), skin infections, post inflammatory skin damage, seborrheic dermatitis, fungal infections (Tinea Versicolor, pitiriasis alba) and autoimmune conditions (like Vitiligo).

The exact cause needs to be determined before any treatment is advised. Hence it would be recommended to consult your dermatologist and seek a proper medical opinion and help.

I hope this helps.
