What Causes: Vitiligo

Vitiligo occurs because of a lack of melanin being produced by the skin. Melanin is a pigment that melanocyte skin cells produce. Melanin is responsible for your skin’s colour.

When you have vitiligo, your melanocyte skin cells aren’t working effectively enough to produce the right amount of melanin for your skin. When this happens, white, paler patches of skin appear.

Vitiligo may be genetic, but it can also be triggered by certain factors. These include -

  • Sunburn
  • Chemical exposure
  • Autoimmune disease
  • Stress
  • Neurogenic reasons
