Why white spots appear
Vitiligo is an invasive skin disease. It is characterized by the appearance of white spots on the human body. They can be several or they cover almost the entire surface of the body.

- skin trauma: thermal or chemical burns, cuts, severe bruises;
- parasitic diseases;
- metabolic disturbances, lack of vitamins and minerals;

- depression, stressful situations, overwork;
- chronic diseases of internal organs;
