Recent posts about Vitiligo
A disease that causes the loss of skin color in blotches. Vitiligo occurs when pigment-producing cells die or stop functioning. Loss of skin color can affect any part of the body, including the mouth, hair, and eyes. It may be more noticeable in people with darker skin. Treatment may improve the appearance of the skin but doesn't cure the disease.
