Vitiligo is a skin disorder where white patches develop on the skin in different parts of the body. It happens when the skin pigment cells (melanocytes) are destroyed through numerous factors. This skin condition can also affect the eye and other parts include mucous membrane like mouth and nose.
Vitiligo happens to people of any gender, age, race, and ethnicity. It is not contagious and doesn’t cause any harm to those who suffered from it except for aesthetic.
