What is Vitiligo.
According to Mayo Clinic (an American nonprofit academic medical center) Vitiligo (vit-ih-LIE-go) is a disease that causes the loss of skin color in blotches. The extent and rate of color loss from vitiligo is unpredictable. It can affect the skin on any part of your body. It may also affect hair and the inside of the mouth.
Normally, the color of hair and skin is determined by melanin. Vitiligo occurs when the cells that produce melanin die or stop functioning. Vitiligo affects people of all skin types, but it may be more noticeable in people with darker skin. The condition is not life-threatening or contagious. It can be stressful or make you feel bad about yourself.
Some of the symptoms of Vitiligo is the patchy loss of skin colour, the premature whitening of hair, Loss of color in the tissues that line the inside of your mouth and nose etc.The treatment of this disease can restore skin color but it cannot prevent the recurrence of skin loss.
