Hello .Thanks for using Health care magic . I would be pleased to answer your question .
1. Vitiligo is caused by autoimmune ,hereditary , conditions. If the body's own defense cells attack color cells ,it results in the loss of color from the skin sites .
2. It can be cured and can take 3 months to 10 years to heal
3. It can spread to other areas of the body
4. It can be stabilized and brought under complete control
5. Medical line and surgical line treatments are the options
Take care
