Title: Information About Vitiligo Treatment

Vitiligo Treatment
Vitiligo is a long term skin condition
characterized by patches of the skin losing their
pigment. The patches of skin affected become
white and usually have sharp margins. The hair
from the skin may also become white. Inside the
mouth and nose may also be involved.
Causes of Vitiligo
  • Vitiligo occurs when pigment-producing cells
    (melanocytes) die or stop producing melanin the
    pigment that gives your skin, hair and eyes
    color. The involved patches of skin become
    lighter or white. Doctors don't know why the
    cells fail or die. It may be related to
  • A disorder in which your immune system attacks
    and destroys the melanocytes in the skin.
  • Family history (heredity).
  • A trigger event, such as sunburn, stress or
    exposure to industrial chemicals.
