Skin is the largest organ in our body, may skin diseases related with the skin directly contact with the external environment. No matter is the physical factors or chemical factors, all play a role that can not ignored. Moreover, we concluded the physical factors that can induce and worsen vitiligo into three factors.

One is sunlight. Over exposure to the sunlight can cause the melanocyte over function and cause it consume and deplete early. The melanin generation is too much, the intermittent substances accumulated will cause the vitiligo damage or apoptosis. But what need to note is there are some vitiligo patients worry about the sunlight will worsen vitiligo, long term avoid the sunlight is also not good for the vitiligo condition. What I need to mention is the proper sunlight irradiation can activate the melanocyte to produce the melanin and help the skin restore the color.
