Vitiligo is an autoimmune skin condition that causes loss of pigmentation of the skin or “white patches”. It may be associated with other autoimmune conditions, such as thyroid autoimmunity. Patches may occur anywhere on the body, including the lips and genital region. Fortunately, there are a variety of medical and specialised treatment options available to help treat vitiligo. Your treating Dermatologist will determine the most suitable treatment for you.
