Generalised vitiligo These patches usually affect the exposed parts of body and due to depletion of mellanocytes in the lesions when exposed to sunlight they cause burning and oozing from few points. Normally, the color of hair and skin is determined by melanin. Vitiligo occurs when the cells that produce melanin die or stop functioning. Vitiligo affects people of all skin types, but it may be more noticeable in people with darker skin. The condition is not life-threatening or contagious. It can be stressful or make you feel bad about yourself

Thanks a lot sir
