When To See A Doctor
Go to your doctor if areas of your skin, hair or eyes lose pigment. Vitiligo has no cure. But treatment will help to stop or slow down the discoloring process and return some pigment to your skin.
Vitiligo occurs when melanin-forming cells (melanocytes) die or decrease the production of melanin — the pigment which gives your skin, hair and eyes color. The patches of skin become lighter or white. Doctors don't know why the cells fail to produce pigment or die. It may be related to:
- An autoimmune disorder in which your immune system attacks and destroys the melanocytes in the skin
- Family history (heredity)
- A trigger trauma, such as sunburn, stress or exposure to industrial harsh chemicals
