Leucoderma or Vitiligo is a disease that causes the loss of skin colour in blotches. The extent and rate of colour loss in Vitiligo is unpredictable. It can affect the skin on any part of your body. It may also affect hair, the inside of the mouth and even the eyes. Normally, the colour of hair, skin and eyes is determined by melanin. Vitiligo occurs when the cells that produce melanin die or stop functioning. Vitiligo affects people of all skin types, but it may be more noticeable in people with dark complexion. The condition is not life-threatening or contagious. It can be stressful or make you feel bad about yourself. The involved patches of skin become lighter or white. It is still unknown why the cells fail or die. It may be related to:
• A disorder in which your immune system attacks and destroys the melanocytes in the skin
• Family history (heredity)
• A trigger event, such as sunburn, stress or exposure to industrial chemicals
The main sign of Vitiligo is colour (pigment) loss that produces light or white patches on your skin. Usually, the discoloration first shows on sun-exposed areas, such as the hands, feet, arms, face and lips.
It's difficult to predict how the disease will progress. In most cases, pigment loss spreads and eventually involves most of your skin. Rarely, the skin gets its colour back. Treatment for Vitiligo may improve the appearance of the affected skin but does not cure the disease.
