What is Vitiligo?

Vitiligo is a skin condition characterized by patches of depigmentation on the skin. The exact cause of vitiligo is not fully understood, but it is thought to be an autoimmune disorder in which the body's immune system attacks and destroys melanocytes, the cells that produce pigment in the skin. Vitiligo can affect any area of the skin, but it is most commonly found on the face, neck, and hands. 

When is it necessary to see a doctor?

Vitiligo is a skin condition that can be managed with medication and lifestyle changes. A doctor can prescribe medication and suggest strategies for managing symptoms. Treatment for vitiligo may involve topical medications, light therapy, and in some cases, surgery.
