There is no cure for vitiligo currently, but scientists are working on genetic research that may one day provide a cure. Since it appears that there is a genetic link to developing vitiligo, scientists are analyzing these linked genes. A mouse model is increasing scientific knowledge of vitiligo. A last area of study involves the white patches caused by vitiligo. Researchers are looking at how these patches grow and spread, as well as what can be done to prevent their development.
Although there is no cure for vitiligo, there are several treatments available for skin patches, as well as eye care; you should discuss these with your doctor.
