Vitiligo Support Group

Vitiligo or leukoderma is a skin disease that causes loss of pigment, resulting in irregular white patches of skin. There is some evidence suggesting it is caused by a combination of auto-immune, genetic and environmental factors. Half of vitiligo patients develop signs of the disorder before the age of 20, with patches of de-pigmented skin appearing on extremities. Share experiences and support with this community!

My doctor told me "most girls won't notice...

    My progress

    After 45 treatments with X trac laser, my face which had patches all over is completely cured. At least for the time being. I went through three times a week for nearly 4 months of treatment.
