Dr. Sanlorenzo – Your Dermatologist in Vienna 1030 – responds to the most frequent questions ON VITILIGO
Vitiligo is long-term condition where pale white patches develop on the skin. Vitiligo usually first appears on the hands, face, and areas around body openings and the genitals.
Vitiligo appears when melanocytes (the pigment-producing cells) die or stop producing melanin. The exact cause is still unclear, but can be related to disorders of the immune system, family history or trigger events (such as stress, severe sunburn or skin trauma).
