Vitiligo and the main symptoms
Vitiligo is a skin disorder, characterized by the loss of melanin, which is a pigment that is responsible for the color of our skin, eyes and hair. Even though the real cause for this condition has not been discovered yet, it has been concluded that people who have some autoimmune disease are a bit more prone to developing vitiligo as well. What may trigger it is emotional stress of any kind, as well as some illness, or damage of the skin, including even sunburn. The main characteristics of vitiligo are seen firstly on the areas that are exposed to the sun the most, and they include white patches on the skin, which are the signs of depigmentation, but people may also experience early graying of the hair, or eyelashes, or even eyebrows.

Unfortunately, when it comes to this skin disorder, it is a fact that it cannot be cured.
