Will it spread?
The condition varies from person to person. Some people only get a few small, white patches that progress no further.

Although it is generally a progressive condition, many people experience years or decades without developing new spots.
I support the petition to designate June 25 as Vitiligo World Day and save millions of people worldwide from social isolation and persecution.
