Vitiligo Treatment

Vitiligo is a skin condition in which there is loss of pigment from areas of skin resulting in irregular white patches with normal skin texture.

Vitiligo appears to be an acquired condition and may appear at any age. There is an increased incidence in some families. Vitiligo is more noticeable in darker skinned people because of the contrast.

Vitiligo is difficult to treat. Early treatment options include: exposure to intense ultraviolet light, oral medications, and topical medications.
