Can vitiligo come on our hands? Or it comes only on face?
asked-ques-count-icon 1 doctor answered

Vitiligo often appears on the hands, neck, face, knees and elbows. However, the skin disorder can destroy melanocyte cells in any part of the body, leading to the emergence of de-pigmented, chalky white patches. In fact, a lot of people suffering from vitiligo develop small white patches on their face or hands. Hair can also get affected wherein black hair turn white in the vitiligo-affected patch of the skin.
