Vitiligo

Introduction

Vitiligo is a skin disorder that leads to loss of skin and hair color in patches and blotches. Loss of color extent and its rate is not predictable. It can affect any area or any part of the body including hair as well as inside of the mouth.

The skin, eye and hair color is determined by a pigment called melanin. Vitiligo happens when cells producing melanin may die or stop functioning. The disorder is not that life-threatening or contagious but makes a person feel stressful and leads to low self- esteem.

Treatment although may heal and restore the affected area but it really cannot prevent continued and slow loss of skin color and its recurrence.
