Q.

Vitargo

My child had a white patch at the corner of his eye. The dermitaologist says that he has vitargo. Does this mean that this white patch will spread and cover his entire body.
Is vitargo and liver disease associated.

Viteligo is a skin condition where white patches develop and then spread to other parts of the body. The cause is unknown and treatment is not very effective. It is not usually associated with liver disease.Please keep in touch with the dermatologist.
