Vitiligo is the loss of color or pigmentation on your skin.
The most common areas of the skin where the loss of pigmentation (normally a white spot on skin) is found initially is:
- Between the toes and finger's
- Under the arms
- Face and neck area
- Hair and scalp, (eyebrow, eyelashes, beard)
- Lower back and behind the knee area.
The affected skin area lighten or turn completely white.
Often, there are no other signs or symptoms, and the person affected feels perfectly healthy.
Color loss can remain unchanged for years. Some people see patches enlarge and new patches appear.
Very rarely does the pigmentation reverse naturally without treatment.
What causes the white spot on skin to appear?
Vitiligo develops when cells called melanocytes (meh-lan-o-sites) die. These cells give our skin and hair color.
Scientists do not completely understand why these cells die, but we know that Vitiligo is caused by an autoimmune dysfunction which manifests as white spots on skin.
An autoimmune 'disease' develops when the body mistakes a part of itself as foreign. If the body mistakes these cells as foreigners, it will attack and kill these cells.
Vitiligo usually affects the skin, but it can develop anywhere we have pigment. Patches of hair can turn white. Some people lose color inside their mouths. Even an eye can lose some of its color.
People of all races get Vitiligo.
Living with Vitiligo can cause other symptoms such as low self-esteem, stress and depression.
One of the major causes of Vitiligo is Stress, and once you discover the condition, the stress of having the condition ultimately leads to more stress. This stress causes the white patches to spread further. You need to act quickly to treat and turn the condition around.
