Vitiligo is a skin condition in which white patches appear on different parts of the body. Commonly, the discoloration first occurs on the sun-exposed areas such as face, hands, and neck. The main cause of this skin disorder is the dead of melanin, a pigment cell determining the color of hair and skin.
The condition is not life-threatening or contagious, but it can be stressful or make the patient feel bad about himself/herself.
Vitiligo treatment restores color of the affected skin and stops or slows the discoloring process. Please note that the final result will appear after few months.
