Could you have vitiligo? What you need to know about the skin condition
Just as people can develop darker patches of skin, where there’s an abundance of pigmentation, the opposite can happen too, where a loss of pigmentation results in noticeably pale, white patches.
The medical name for this is vitiligo, and it affects around one in every 100 people in the UK.
Michael Jackson reportedly had it, and Most Haunted presenter Yvette Fielding has previously talked about the impact of her vitiligo.
