Vitiligo is a common skin disorder characterized by irregular, pale or milky white patches on the body. This happens when melanocytes (pigment-producing cell) in our skin, gets destroyed resulting in the formation of white patches. Though Vitiligo is not life-threatening, it affects the patient’s well being as much as it affects the skin. People with Vitiligo suffer from fear of being socially rejected and emotional disturbances and therefore require a holistic treatment wherein along with the improvement in the skin condition, the treatment also focuses on the patient’s emotional and psychological wellbeing.
