Long before, vitiligo has well been regarded as a long term skin condition in which a white patch appears over the skin. Experts described that the condition takes place because of an autoimmune disorder where the immune system tends to attack the melanin-producing cells. Often, the patches usually begin on areas of skin that are exposed to the sun and become more noticeable in people with darker skin complexion. However, although the root-cause remains to be unknown, a significant number of experts believe that vitiligo may result in psychological stress and those affected may be stigmatized.

According to reports revealed by the National Institute Of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases, vitiligo may take place when a person's immune system mistakenly attacks some part of your own body.

Experts believe that it may be possible that an abnormality in the genetic component may make a person more likely to get the disorder. Usually, people develop it in their twenties, but doctors said that it can also occur at any age.
