Symptoms Of Vitiligo

The symptoms of vitiligo are quite simple to spot, and their diagnosis in most dermatology clinic is quite easy because their symptoms are unique. They develop white patches that appear gradually and spread to different parts of the body.

Segmental vitiligo only affects one part of the body, whereas vitiligo mucosa concentrates only on the mucous membranes. The individual with vitiligo feels no pain, and it cannot be spread through contact from person to person.

However, this skin condition comes with a psychological effect, which leads the person to seek an urgent solution. It’s often accompanied by a lack of self-confidence, and in some cases, the individual will be unable to perform activities like swimming. The affected person tends to change their lifestyle to hide the disease. This includes putting on clothes that cover the affected area.
