What Causes Vitiligo?
The exact cause of vitiligo is unknown. However, most experts agree that it is an autoimmune condition in which the body's immune system mistakenly attacks and destroys certain cells within the body and causes depigmentation of the skin. There are specific risk factors associated with vitiligo including family history of the disease and autoimmune diseases such as Hashimoto’s disease and alopecia.
Although vitiligo does not damage your physical health, it can be very harmful to your emotional and psychological health. For advanced treatment for your vitiligo, contact our Atlanta Vitiligo Treatment Specialists at Olansky Dermatology Associates today.
