Vitiligo can be defined as a common skin disorder seen to affect around 1% of the total population. This is a condition characterised as sharply defined white patches that develop on the surface of the skin as a result of a lack of pigmentation. These patches are often symmetrical and can occur anywhere on the body, with the hands, torso, feet, knees, neck, and face being the most commonly affected.
While this is not a skin disorder that is typically harmful to your overall health, its overall appearance can often lead to insecurity for those experiencing this condition, causing those to seek out cosmetic treatments that will work to resolve the issue. For individuals seeking treatment for Vitiligo, Birmingham Dermatology Clinic are on hand to help, offering quality care that will help to effectively treat the skin condition and restore your confidence.

• Steroid cream
• Ultraviolet light
