Vitiligo is a disease produced by a lack of pigment in the skin in certain parts of the body. It is not contagious. There is another similar disease which is called “mal del pinto” and occurs only in 2% or 3% of the cases due to an infection. It exists in the Southern part of Mexico.
Vitiligo symptoms are:
Presence of small white spots, which grow little by little. The areas where they first appear are: abdomen, armpits, hands or neck; however, they may invade the whole body.
Causes: are not known but it is very probable that they have a psychosomatic or nervous origin.
To keep stress under control (see section about stress), take Salmon Omega-3 for your nerves and apply sunscreen to the white areas that are exposed to the sun.
