vitiligo disease

Vitiligo, a disease that makes the skin lose colour in streaks

The vitiligo is a disease in which the rate and the extent of colour loss from the skin are unpredictable. Ideally, our hair and body colour are determined by the level of melanin in our body. Vitiligo occurs when the melanin-producing cells either die or stop functioning. It can happen to any skin type but the effects are more noticeable on darker skins. However, this disease isn’t life-threatening. Also, it is neither contagious!

The main symptoms of Vitiligo are:

  • De-pigmentation of the skin in patches
  • Premature greying/whitening of hair
  • De-pigmentation in mucous membranes (inside of mouth, nose etc)
  • Change or loss of colour in the retina
