Vitiligo does not have adverse effects on pregnancy: Study
Vitiligo does not have adverse effects on pregnancy, according to research. Vitiligo is a skin condition that causes the loss of skin pigment, resulting in white patches. The skin stops producing melanin and depigmentation takes place. The onset of the condition is still not well understood, but there are several theories that offer some insight into possible causes.
For one, genetics may play a role in vitiligo, as it is seen to run in families. Another theory suggests that vitiligo may be caused by an immune system disorder, as patients report higher trigger incidences such as stress and prior sunburns.
