Couldn't find what you looking for?


Hi, there. I have been reading some material on vitiligo. I understand that it is caused by the loss of skin pigment. It is manifested with the areas of white skin. However, I would like to know how to spot vitiligo on white skin. I am talking about really pale people. Does anyone have any idea?


Dear pavel225136147,

Vitaligo completed covered me by the time I was in my mid-twenties. So here I am at age 82, extremely fair with no age spots, but I have very good skin … no alcohol or cigarettes and I avoided the sun. Initially I had normal skin coloring for a Caucasian. Grateful that I no longer have white blotches.
