Symptoms of Vitiligo

The most obvious sign or symptom of vitiligo is loss of pigment on the skin, resulting in milky-white, irregularly-shaped patches on the skin

Typically occurs first on sun-exposed areas (face, hands, feet, arms, legs).

Less common signs include pigment loss or graying of hair on scalp, eyebrows, eyelashes or other affected areas.

May also experience loss of pigment on the tissues that line the inside of the mouth (mucous membranes) and the retina of the eye.

Some of those affected by vitiligo experience intense itching at the site of depigmentation during active stages.
