When does vitiligo stop spreading?

Without treatment, vitiligo usually continues to spread in the 3-6 months following its initial appearance. It may then stop spreading (in remission) for months or years, but unfortunately after some time, relapses again with further extension. During periods of remission some re-pigmentation may spontaneously appear but this is seldom complete.

There is no way to predict what type of vitiligo a person will develop, on what part of the body it will appear, nor how slow or fast it will spread.
