Vitiligo is a disorder wherein white patches of skin appear on different parts of the human body. This occurs because the cells that make the pigment in the skin are destroyed. These cells are named as melanocytes. Vitiligo may also affect the mucous membranes.

What Are The Symptoms?

White patches visible on the skin are the main symptoms of vitiligo. These patches are common in areas where the skin is exposed to the sun. The patches may be on the different parts of the body. Other common areas for white patches are:

  • Around the mouth
  • The armpits and groin
  • Eye
  • Navel
  • Nostrils
  • Genitals
  • Rectal areas

People with vitiligo often have grey hair. Individuals with dark skin may loss color inside their mouths.

How Is It Treated?

Treatment may make the skin look more even. The preference of treatment depends on:

  • The number of white patches present on the body
  • How widespread the patches are on the body

Some treatments are not right for every individual. Many treatments can have undesirable side effects. Treatment takes a long time and may sometimes not even work.
