Vitiligo: Personality traits

Vitiligo: Personality traits

  • Anxious
  • Loyal, compliant and grateful
  • Eager for knowledge
  • Many misconceptions on the disease
  • Vitiligo is familial
  1. Not only it runs in families
  2. But the consequences can be on the whole family. In some cultures, the siblings of individuals with vitiligo won’t get married as the social stigmatization is so high beacause of the fear of contagion.
