WHAT IS VITILIGO?
Vitiligo is an autoimmune condition in which the cells that provide our skin with its colour (melanocytes) are destroyed. The condition results in patches of abnormally white skin.
WHAT CAUSES VITILIGO?
The exact cause of vitiligo is unknown. Sometimes the white patchy appearance of vitiligo can appear following an injury or sunburn but in other cases there doesn’t seem to be evidence of a trigger.
HOW IS VITILIGO TREATED?
Sun protection is incredibly important for those that have vitiligo as the skin can only burn and not tan. Additionally sun burn can be a trauma that triggers or spreads vitiligo.
