    Hi, i m pooja, 24, from India. My parents got married 27 years back. My mom has been a patient of vitiligo since last 10 years. Earlier, she had very minute patches but since the last 3 years they have grown much. My mom has lost her self-confidence and has socially isolated herself completely. Also, since my childhood days i’ve found her little mentally & emotionally distressed owing to her bad relationships with her in-laws in family. And after the prominence of this skin disease she doesn’t seem to be mentally normal.Her condition has worsened to such an extent that she doesn’t sleep at night, remains frustrated and cries frequently and talks to herself. Has her vitiligo developed due to this history of emotional distress? Do i need to refer her to a psychiatrist? Plz answer my questions if u have any..
