Vitiligo is a disease that causes the loss of skin color in patches.
The exact cause of vitiligo is unknown but it is believed to be caused by a combination of genetic and environmental factors. It is not contagious and there is no known cure.
Although it can be treated overtime with steroids to darken the affected parts. The treatment may improve the appearance of the affected parts but it doesn’t cure the disease.
