Even in this age and times, there are many myths that surround white patches. Some think white patches are caused by consuming milk over fish. However this is far from the truth and there is absolutely no scientific basis to this theory. Some are advised to completely avoid white coloured food including milk. This makes the patient live in fear and constant guilt for not being able to follow diet restrictions. Further some communities believe that it is a curse and will spread by touch. This is also not true. By nature, white patches are merely pigment disorder like hyper-pigmentation or dark circles. Patients with white patches however may need to be checked for associated conditions like hypothyroid, diabetes or anaemia.
