Vitiligo causes appearance of white patches on your skin. Doctors still don’t know what causes the appearance of the patches, but they believe that Vitiligo might be caused by an autoimmune disorder where the immune system attacks the melanin-producing cells.
It’s not a fatal disease but it can certainly cause embarrassment and discomfort in people.
