Can you imagine the psychological consequence this will have on the victim? I can assure you that it will be horrendous!
This condition is not curable but can be treated with steroid creams, Light therapy, excimer laser, Calcineurin inhibitors which can put back some pigmentation in some patients but not all. Many people use concealers like Dermablend, Mary Kay, Mac and Black up to cover the affected patches but these are temporary measures.

Recently, I went to Balogun market to shop here in Lagos and I saw a beautiful black woman whose name I later learnt was Modina. She had vitiligo on her face and she was so beautiful but looked forlorn. So I approached her and after apologising for my impunity(if you like) told her that they were concealer powders she could use to conceal the patches on her face if she felt the need to cover up and that I could list them out right away. Her face lit up and she told me that she and her husband have been at a loss of what to do, she said there was no need to write it out as we were in the market we should go buy them immediately! I will never forget the appreciative smile on her face as we exchanged numbers and names afterwards, with her clutching her powders so tightly to her bosom.
