Incidentally, there are many models and models with vitiligo, as well as many famous people who make cinema and theater. Vitiligo consists in the lack, in the progressive loss of color in the pigmentation of the skin.
We must explain to our little ones that vitiligo is a problem that can be solved or mitigated by the dermatologist with specific and targeted treatments. Such as uvb therapy.
