Vitiligo Overview

The condition vitiligo causes the skin to become colourless. Any race of person can have this skin condition. However, darker skinned individuals will notice it the most as a result of the harsher contrast between their regular skin tone and the white spots caused by vitiligo.

Any area of the body can be affected by the vitiligo disease, generally known as a skin condition that causes white spots. Men, women, and kids can all display the disease. When both parents have vitiligo, the likelihood of vitiligo in children increases.

Generally, the affected skin begins as a pale area and soon becomes entirely white. Over time, these discolored regions frequently enlarge and leave behind white patches of skin. Even though the exact cause of vitiligo is still unknown, it is treatable with the right vitiligo treatment.
