Did you know?

Vitiligo and Leucoderma are white patches. They look the same but the cause is different. Vitiligo may be autoimmune in which, the immune system attacks the body’s skin producing cells (melanocytes). Thus, the skin loses its pigment/colour and hence the white patches. While, Leucoderma generally occurs after any physical injury like a cut, burn or any unhealed wound which turns into a white patch and does not re-pigment gradually. 75-85% of persons with Vitiligo/ Leucoderma do not have a positive family history. Effect of treatments varies from person to person. There are treatments but no common specific cure. The exact reason behind Vitiligo & Leucoderma remains unknown.
