Vitiligo is a acquired, noninfective disorder of skin affecting the melanocytes. It is clinically present with asymptomatic, milky white patches on the body in generalized or localized pattern. This disease is strongly associated with social stigma that influences the daily quality of life of patients and their family. Sometimes this stigma leads to overtreatment of disease by home remedies which result into a life threatening condition for the patients.
