Vitiligo is a condition that causes spots or patches of lighter skin. It happens when the skin cells stop producing melanin, which is the pigment that gives skin its color.
While vitiligo is not a dangerous medical condition, it can affect how kids feel about themselves. That’s why our pediatric dermatologists work hard to reduce its effects. We want kids to feel good inside and out.
