Vitiligo and PsoriasisVitiligo and psoriasis are skin conditions. Vitiligo is a skin disease that is recognized by the presence of whitish spots on any area of the skin. This pigmentation disorder occurs when the immune system destroys the melanocytes, the cells responsible for coloring the skin. Fortunately, there are currently various methods to treat this disease, such as phototherapy or the use of special lasers.
Psoriasis also affects the skin, but not its pigments. This is a chronic inflammatory disease in which the skin becomes irritated and reddened; People who have it usually have red, scaly skin lesions. Its causes can be many: stress, trauma to the skin, bacterial infections or some medications.
