Vitiligo is a chronic, unpredictable disease causing a loss of skin color in patches. People of all ages and from all ethnic backgrounds can develop the disease. People who develop vitiligo usually first notice white patches (depigmentation) on their skin. These patches are more commonly found on sun-exposed areas of the body, including the hands, feet, arms, face, and lips. People who have vitiligo, particularly those with fair skin, are encouraged to minimize sun exposure and use a sunscreen or wear protective clothing that provides protection from both UVA and UVB rays. It is most important to protect the skin from sunburn and long-term damage.
